Livers is a multifaceted, right-handed, wing that shoots accurately and has the skill to run offense though. Livers averaged 13.1 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in 2020-21. He shot 43.1% from beyond the college arc, and 87% FT. His assist-to-turnover ratio was a stout 1.76-to-1. He finished fourth in Big Ten boxscore plus/minus. ...Livers is somewhat the "forgotten man" in this Draft. He was injured before the NCAA Tournament so it's been awhile since he's played in a meaningful contest. He suffered a stress fracture in his foot that was later operated on. He may need more time to rehab. ...We enjoyed watching him play this season. He makes timely cuts, he can really shoot it, and he just looked like a pro on the floor. ...We think he will be selected late in round two.
Our best advice: in 2016, the 52nd pick was Joel Bolomboy. We advised, "draft Gary Payton II."
