Josh Green is an elite athlete. He’s 6-foot-5, wields a 6-foot-11 wingspan, and can jump — high. That alone will keep NBA scouts intrigued, as there’s very clear potential in a top-notch athlete who can defend multiple positions on the wing.
Even so, there are very clear flaws in Green’s game. He’s a questionable shooter, with mechanical flaws and a sketchy track record. He’s also a rudimentary ball handler, possessing only basic moves in his still-developing arsenal.
As a result, there are valid concerns about Green’s ability to contribute to a halfcourt offense. But his defensive upside and prolific talent in transition are more than enough to overcome those issues and work up first-round chatter.
