Scouting Report

OVERVIEW
Cunningham entered the NBA draft after one season in Stillwater and is widely viewed as the top prospect in the 2021 class.
Upon entering college basketball as the No. 1 recruit in the nation, Cunningham solidified his status as an elite prospect during his lone season at Oklahoma State.
Cunningham stuck with the Cowboys even after learning the program faced probation for NCAA violations.
He averaged 20.1 points per game while shooting 43.8 percent overall, including 40 percent from the 3-point line, and he did so despite being the primary focus of every opposing defense.
ANALYSIS
Positives: Cunningham has the size and versatility that NBA scouts crave. He can do almost anything asked, whether that means operating as the primary ball handler and playmaker, or taking over as the lead scorer when needed. He also is strong on defense and can match up against multiple positions. At 19 years old, his best days are in front of him, and while nothing is guaranteed he is the safest bet to excel at the pro level. Cunningham is not a slam-dunk No. 1 overall pick in the way that Zion Williamson was, for example, but he is a total-package prospect who likely will hear his name called first.
Negatives: Due to streaks when he attempts to go one-on-all with the ball, Cunningham averaged four turnovers per game with the Cowboys. He also can improve his consistency when it comes to shooting, although he did well on a Cowboys team that had little other firepower on offense. At minimum, he projects as a solid NBA starter.
