Nix played what would have been his freshman college season for the G-League Ignite. He is a 19-year-old, pass-first Point Guard that has a real feel for how to play the right way. Nix averaged 8.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 5.2 assists per game. Right handed but uses his left well. ...He struggled with deep shooting, making just 6 of 34 three-point attempts (17%). He made 71.4% of his free throws. Nix has a 6'7" wingspan. He held his own defensively, with a DEFRTG that was equal to the Ignite DEFRTG. ...We expect Nix to be taken late in round two of this 2021 NBA Draft. We view him as a development player that could turn into something unique with his throwback feel for running a team.
Our best advice: in 2005, the 9th pick was Ike Diogu. We advised, "draft Danny Granger."
