2024 NBA Draft Scouting Profile: Kyshawn George

Kyshawn George is an international prospect who played his freshman year with the Miami Hurricanes. While George likely won’t be great out the gate, he has natural offensive and defensive guard instincts and is 6’8 with a 6’10 wingspan and an 8’9 stand and reach, so he has real potential to become a good NBA player. Whether George can consistently score on the offensive end will be the difference maker in the quality of his career. For 2024 NBA Mock Drafts, Kevin O’Connor has Kyshawn going 32nd. Jonathan Wasserman has him going 37th. NBA Draft Room has George going 17th.

Kyshawn George has the game savvy of an NBA guard while having the body of an NBA forward (needs to get stronger but most young NBA players do). George is a naturally versatile passer; he doesn’t disrupt the rhythm of the offense by holding onto the ball too long. George can find cutters and throw good outlet passes as well. George is a great ball handler. He is a particularly good all-round shooter, on and off the dribble. His shooting raises his floor significantly. George is capable of getting to the basket both as the primary ball-handler and on cuts. George is a smart and effective defender, though not great. George knows how to use his length to disrupt passes and get blocks.


George’s shot mechanic is a bit slow, and he shoots from too low. His shot mechanic may cap his ability to consistently create. He is not particularly quick. He currently lacks a consistent go-to move to score. His potential inability to create for himself on offense is the biggest threat to his NBA career. George is good at most things, but not great, which means his ability may not translate to the NBA. His minimal overall production and minutes in college are a concern, though he is only 20. With all of these concerns, don’t be surprised if George spends a significant portion of his first pro years in the G-League.

Kyshawn George will likely be an NBA player for several years, even if he fails to develop a consistent way to score. George’s floor is non-rotational bench player for a few seasons who knows how to play the game but just can’t score well enough and is not special enough at anything to warrant consistent minutes. A good comparison is a more athletic but less good shooting and defending prime Joe Ingles. I expect George to be a rotation-level NBA player who could fill in as a starter if needed, though he likely doesn’t quite reach the highs of prime Joe Ingles. His ceiling is a guard version of current Franz Wagner, so a really good player but not quite an all-star. If he is available for the Jazz’s 29th or 32nd pick, the Jazz should select him.
