Scotto's draft notes:

“Kyshawn’s going to be a riser,” a longtime NBA executive told HoopsHype. “He knows how to play and can shoot. He handles it well like a guard, even though he’s 6-foot-8. As a matter of fact, I think he had a late growth spurt after playing point guard when he was younger. He could be drafted in the teens somewhere just outside the lottery. He’s not bad defensively, too, because he sits down with his long arms.”

“If the draft started tomorrow, George would go in the lottery,” an NBA scout told HoopsHype. “He’s 6-foot-8, can play some spot point guard minutes, and handle the ball, but he has no physicality despite his frame. He can pass. He’s not a great athlete, but a good one. He’s not going to blow past you with quickness.”
