NBA Comparison: John Paxson

Strengths: One of the top three point shooters in college basketball over the past several seasons … Shot above 40% from behind the arc in his four seasons at Wofford … Has an extremely quick release and can hit off-balance shots … Knocked down 91 percent of his free throws to finish with a 90.8 percent average from the charity stripe in his career … Uses his quick feet to get by defenders and cut corners around screens …  Led Wofford to an undefeated in-conference record and to a 7 seed in the NCAA Tournament this season … In his junior and senior season, he averaged 20 or more points per game … Knocks down tough shots in big games … Set the NCAA Division I record for most career 3-pointers (509) …

Weaknesses: Not a physical defender and is only an average athlete … Lacks an elite first step off the dribble … Does not seem willing to box out the nearest offensive player … One of his biggest weaknesses is his off-ball defense … Lacks effort and communication on the defensive end … Does not extend his arms to put pressure on the ball-handler, instead he tends to keep his arms to close to his sides … Scored just 8 points in Wofford’s most important game of the season in the Sweet 16 against Kentucky, shooting 0-for-12 from downtown … Will be 23 in November …

Outlook: Magee is a skilled combo guard and elite three-point shooter … Must put in work defensively and be willing to commit on both ends of the floor … Potentially a borderline second round candidate for the 2019 NBA draft, but will likely go undrafted …

Notes: Attended Wofford University … Named 2019 Southern Conference Player of the Year … As a senior, he drained 158  three-pointers which is tied for second-most in NCAA history in a single season … Scored 20 or more points in 20 contests this season …  Scored 24 points as Wofford recorded its first NCAA Tournament victory over Seton Hall …
