Anthony Edwards scouting report

Anthony Edwards is an explosive guard who can create chances for his teammates as well as drive down to the basket all by himself. His favorite players are Dwyane Wade and Victor Oladipo, and the youngster is already earning massive comparisons with them. 

Though it is too early to tell, his game resembles their style. He has the strength and the quick athleticism packed into his body which makes him a threatening presence on the offense. His body strength allows him to muscle past defenders and pure shooting talent allows him to finish off what he starts. 

Edwards has all the skills one can look for in a powerful guard. He has a beautiful jumper and moreover can posterize defenders with his massive dunks and always proves to be a threat by drawing fouls and going to the free-throw line. Edwards is most effective when running down the wing, as he gracefully slides past the defense to complete his jumper or a layup.

Anthony Edwards NBA Draft

Edwards is one of the top-ranked prospects in the NBA Draft. He is expected to land in the Top 3 picks due to his unavoidable talent when it comes to basketball. Edwards has proven his talent with Georgia, and he seems to be tailor-made for the NBA. 

Edwards is undoubtedly the best shooting guard in the 2020 draft class and it would be surprising if he lands outside the first three picks. The Minnesota Timberwolves are expected to use their #1 pick and select Edwards, but it was reported that he failed to impress with his “sluggish” skills on Pro Day.
