Ryan Rollins is a smooth shot creator with an ability to create both for himself and for others, while being a capable defender that can hunt the passing lanes. Rollins’ most gifted offensive ability is to run offense out of the pick & roll. As a pick & roll ball-handler, there are 4 possible outcomes, and Ryan Rollins does all of them well: scoring using screens, passing to the roll-man, passing to a cutter, or finding shooters on a skip pass. Beyond scoring out of screen sets, Rollins has tight handles and a quick first step that help him break his man down in isolation , allowing him to get to his spots against any level of competition.

Defensively, Rollins projects to be around average due to adequate footspeed and a strong instincts in creating turnovers, particularly in intercepting passes. If he can be a stellar 3 level scorer while playing average defense, he should safely be starting in the NBA.

Similar to: Elijah Hughes, Donovan Mitchell, Malik Monk

Projected draft range: 25-50

Expected role: Starting guard to complement a pure PG in a 2 guard lineup

Unplayable if: 3 point shot doesn’t translate, and his predictable right handedness at the rim becomes a stoppable habit for defenses.

Exceeds expectations if: 3 point shot translates, and range improves. This would allow him to safely earn the label of 3 level scorer.
