Shavon Shields on neither mock?

Nebraska's do-it-all junior guard/forward is efficient and talented and has great bloodlines. His dad Will was a stud guard for the Chiefs for many years.

He's averaging 18, 7 and 2 on 57/39/83 shooting

6'7'' 214 shooting guard, you'd think he'd be in a mock?

Nebraska's website even

Nebraska's website even states 6'7" 221, little bit heavier. He looks like a solid player, showing a sense of hustle and tenacity I really like in a player. He seems very competitive, giving everything both on offense and defense. Player like that tend to end up being above-average defenders at least in the NBA. Based on the limited video's available of him I would say his main issue is his shot, which isn't perfectly fluid and has a slightly low release point. This might halt his development as a go-to-guy on offense, especially at the next level. So... do I think this guy will ever be more than a role player in the NBA? I don't know, but at least he shows solid 3-D potential, which is something that interests every team these days.

One extra plus for him is that he will gain (international) experience pretty quick, considering he plays for the Danish team in international play. Getting experience in games with grown-up men with something on the line always makes players better (like Taylor for Sweden or Towns Jr. for Dominican Republic).

I could see him going in the second round somewhere this year or the next (probably the next). He might have some flaws, but if he continues to put up big numbers with solid shooting percentages some team will pick him up eventually.
