3. Keyonte George

Keyonte George looks like he will fall to the tenth pick and could be a great fit in Dallas.

George went to Lewisville High School for his first two years before transferring to iSchool of Lewisville for his junior year. After playing for a year at iSchool, he decided to play his senior year at IMG Academy.

George was ninth on 247 Sport's class of 2022 rankings and went on to play college ball at Baylor. While at Baylor, he averaged 15.3 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 1.1 steals per game. He was the second leading scorer on his team behind Adam Flagler, proving he was a lock for the lottery in the 2023 NBA Draft.

He has a knack for scoring the ball and will likely be a score-first type of player once he's in the NBA. George shot 33.8 percent from downtown at Baylor on 6.9 attempts per game. This number may not seem the best, but if you watch the type of shots he takes, it makes sense.

He hits tough shots and likes to shoot threes off the dribble. George also has a tight handle that he uses to get to the rim and finish through traffic. He is a three-level scorer that can score in bunches.

He is the least likely of the three named players to come to Dallas, but if they select him, they'd have another dynamic scorer in their young core alongside Jaden Hardy and Luka Doncic.
