NBA Comparison: Josh Selby

Strengths: Garrett is a ferocious and aggressive perimeter defender who asserted himself as one of the best defenders in the nation throughout his career for the Jayhawks … If Davion Mitchell did not exist this past year, Garrett very easily could have won back-to-back Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year awards … Lightning quick guard who can blow by you in a flash and finish creatively around the rim … Continued to show improvement with jump shooting and free-throw shooting especially as he went from 49% to 81% from the line during his career. Continued improvement would make Garrett a formidable two-way star as he will not have trouble impacting the game on the defensive end of the floor … Pesky defensive style leads to frustration and a ton of steals. The former Jayhawk racked up 181 steals in his career in 129 games and 80 starts … Garrett also has decent length for a combo guard standing at 6’5 with nearly a 6’10 wingspan … Disruptive perimeter defender who will carve out a role for himself and earn minutes to show what he can do. There are very few questions about his quickness, athleticism, and defensive talent … Attacks the glass and soars for rebounds as he averaged four boards per game for Kansas … Decent playmaker and passer who averaged over four assists per game as a junior and nearly four per game as a senior

Weaknesses: Guards who struggle to shoot and score are starting to become less and less common, which does not bode well for Garrett’s stock … It took four years to see real improvement with his free-throw shooting, which makes it hard to tell if his improvement was simply a fluke or if he really can blossom into a shooting and scoring role … Limited offensive upside and as one of the older players, teams may not be as patient to see if he can be more than an offensive liability … Started turning the ball over more as a senior with two turnovers per game … Only averaged double figures in one of his four seasons

Outlook: 3-time Big 12 All-Defense … 2-Time All-Big-12 Player … 2019-20 Big-12 Defensive Player of the Year … 11 PTS, 4.6 REB, 3.7 AST, 1.6 STL as a senior at Kansas

Notes: Measured 6’4.5” barefoot, 6’5.75” in shoes 8’6.0” standing reach, 188.2 lbs, and 6’9.75” wingspan at the 2021 NBA G-League Elite Camp …
