Sales Pitch
An undersized guard with the "underdog" mentality that makes your life a living nightmare on the defensive side of the ball.
Background
While a lot of the NBA world was paying close attention to the coveted high school recruit Naz Reid, Tremont Waters did a great job of making a name for himself with his impressive guard play for the Tigers this year. Waters is a bit of an "underappreciated" prospect in this years class. He's a small ball handler but has sensational skills on the defensive side of the ball and a generally impressive feel for the game. He's a serious sleeper in this class.
Pro Comparison
Tyler Ulis with more offensive firepower
Positives

DEFENSIVE DEMON

  • He's basically a backcourt version of Freddy Kruger. All over the floor, plays locked in defense and has NFL DB like anticipation skills. Averaged 2.9 steals per game this year. Not a fluke.

CONTROL

  • Shows a fantastic understanding of the flow of the game. Very under control, doesn't buckle when pressured. Does a great job of making smart decisions and throwing accurate passes.

SHOOTING

  • Can score at three levels. Pull-up threat off the bounce and can also hurt you from deep. Promise as a shot-up shooter. 
Negatives

SIZE

  • Undersized for a modern age point guard. Could create some problems if defenses try to target him in mismatches.

FINISHING

  • Below the rim finisher mainly because of his size. Needs to develop an arsenal of floaters to compensate. 
Overall
Give us all of the Tremont Waters stock you can get your hands on. Yes, Waters is an undersized guard but he checks boxes all across the board with his smooth playing style. Waters is always under control and can score from all three levels. He knows the odds are going to be stacked against him, but the guy can just flat out play. Look up his steals per game for the last several college seasons and you'll need to pick your jaw up off of the floor. We love defense here.
