Watford is an interesting prospect due to his ability to drive the ball at 6'8". If he catches in the elbow area, he can score with a quick one or two dribble-drive. Unfortunately, Watford doesn't have the perimeter shooting touch to complement his ball-handling ability. He shot just 31.6% from beyond the NCAA arc. At the free throw line, he shot 65.1%. ...Watford has big hands (second biggest measured hand length of 9.5" at the NBA Draft Combine). ...Watford averaged 16.3 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 2.9 assists in 2020-21. He had a 1.10-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio. He is an excellent defensive rebounder with a 7'2" wingspan. ...Watford's DEFRTG was slightly worse than the LSU team DEFRTG. ...Watford will probably not be drafted but we wouldn't rule him out of making an NBA roster. He needs to get himself into NBA condition and improve his shooting touch from the perimeter.
Our best advice: in 2016, the 60th pick was Tyrone Wallace. We advised, "draft Gary Payton II."
