Tyrell Terry, PG/SG, Stanford, 19.6 years old

Height: 6’1

Weight:160 lbs.

2019-2020 per game stats: 14.6 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.2 assist, 1.4 steals, 32.6 minutes

Terry’s Stanford highlights

Tyrell Terry is one of the most interesting players to project in the 2020 NBA Draft class. Terry is one of the top shooting prospects in the class. He hit 40.8 percent of his 152 3-point attempts this season. Terry also sank 89.1 percent from the free throw line. He can shoot off the dribble, catch-and-shoot, score off the catch.

He has adequate point guard skills, but his role will likely be as more of an off-ball player in the NBA. With Luka in Dallas, that is not an issue.

Terry’s slender frame will probably make him a mess on defense and could prevent him from being a good finisher inside. If he can add strength, Terry might end up being a steal given his elite shooting touch.

Grant Riller, PG/SG, College of Charleston, 23.3 years old

Height: 6’3

Weight:190 lbs.

2019-2020 per game stats: 21.9 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.6 steals, 33.5 minutes

Riller’s college highlights

Grant Riller is the elder statesman of the group. He already turned 23 years old. That sticks out immediately because the other three point guards on this list are at least three years younger. The four year player from Charleston is also the most complete player of this group.

Riller is the most explosive athlete. He combines speed, strength, and leaping ability to make him a dangerous threat coming towards the basket.

He can legitimately score at all three levels and has a steady jump shot. Riller hit 35.6 percent from 3-point range over his NCAA career. He also hit over 80 percent of his free throws during his final two seasons at the College of Charleston.

His passing ability isn’t great, but Doncic will mitigate it in Dallas. The biggest knocks on Riller seem to be his age and competition level.

Riller is probably the lowest rated prospect included in this list, but don’t be surprised if he climbs up the boards in a weak class. If the Mavs are able to grab him at 31, jump for joy.
