Maxey is a sturdy, athletic, aggressive guard that plays FAST. He is tremendous in transition. He averaged 14 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game in his lone season at Kentucky. While he struggled from beyond the three-point arc (29%), he showed his shooting touch by netting 83% of his free throws. His 1.47-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio is solid for a scoring guard. He has the ability to penetrate defenses with the dribble. Maxey is right handed but he uses his left very well, with no issues finishing with his off-hand. On defense, despite being pesky, Kentucky was decidedly better on defense (3.5 points per 100 possessions) when Maxey was off the floor. ...Maxey was named to the Second Team All-SEC. ...Played in both the 2019 Jordan Brand Classic, and McDonald's All-American games. ...Maxey is an undisputed "NBA athlete", and a bright, alert, young man. He is not afraid to take big shots. He shows natural leadership skills. ...We expect him to be selected in the middle of the first round.
Our best advice: in 2012, the 30th pick was Festus Ezeli. We advised, "draft Draymond Green."
