On Monday,Pro Basketball Talk released the second in our NBA Draft Prospect Profile series, an in-depth breakdown of Michigan State’s Jaren Jackson Jr.
Jackson is a weird prospect. He is almost assuredly going to get picked in the top four, yet he was the fifth option offensively for his team in college, played just 22 minutes a game as a power forward and just so happens to be the future of the center position in the NBA.
How are all those things possible?
We take a deep dive here, as well as in the scouting video above. Jackson is one of the more fascinating prospects in this draft class.
