Quade Green, USA, Point Guard, Class of 2017, Kentucky, 18.9
-Undersized, but has done a nice job of maximizing his frame
-Advanced passer who can playmake in transition, make all the necessary reads out of ball screens and drive and kick/dish in the half court. Excellent timing. Passes teammates open. Can deliver the ball with either hand. Lifetime 13.3 assists per 40 minutes. Vocal. Tight handle.
-Capable shooter who can make an open three with time and space. Lifetime 35%.
-Soft touch on floaters.
-Tough nosed defender with great feet. Competitive kid. Philly demeanor. Good instincts. Lifetime 4.5 steals per 40 minutes.
-Average physical profile at 6' 0 in shoes with a 6' 1.25 wingspan. Doesn't make up for it with freakish athleticism.
-Struggles to finish vs size and length. Lifetime 48.1% from two.
-Average shooter off the catch and bounce. Shoots it from the left side of his face. Doesn't create a ton of separation off the bounce. Not a guy who's going to elevate while closely guarded and make a lot of contested jumpers.
-If he's not a dynamic shot maker or much of a finisher, how will he score consistently in the half court?
-A bit more turnover prone than you'd like for a floor general type. Struggles a bit with hard hedges. Can improve his ability to make the simple play. Size limits his ability to pass over the top of the defense.
-Defensive upside is capped by his average size and length. Tough, pesky defender but figures to struggle with bigger guards.
NBA scouts weren't able to get an extended look at Green because he suffered a concussion early on i the week and didn't play in the game. In the little action we did see Green was able to show his court vision and defensive toughness while struggling a bit with protecting the ball and scoring in the half court. Green may not be loaded with upside but he figures to make an impact immediately at Kentucky thanks to his ability to create for others along with his pesky on ball defense.

Quade Green, 6-0, Point Guard, Neumann and Goretti High School, PA 2017 Class, Uncommitted

-Has a pretty strong frame that should fill out
-Big time floor general. Excellent court vision and timing. Uses both sides of the court. Already has an advanced understanding of how to operate on the pick and roll.
-Unselfish player who loves to get teammates easy baskets. Pushes the ball ahead in transition with the pass or the dribble
-Has a low and tight handle that he can use to probe the defense
-Not exceptionally athletic, but has really nice ability to change speeds and keep defenders off balance with pace and body control.
-Has a lot of “wiggle” to his game that helps him create off the bounce, even without a screen
-Finds ways to score occasionally around the rim with craftiness and touch, using either hand. Doesn't mind contact, despite his lack of size
-Shows some touch operating in the mid-range. Has good mechanics and a quick release on his pull-ups
-Can make a 3-pointer. Shooting 37% for 3 and 88% from the line in EYBL play this season.
-Can get right up in his opponent defensively when he wants to, moving his feet and putting strong pressure on the ball. Gets in the passing lanes with quick hands
-Tough kid who is not afraid to stick his nose in on either end of the floor
-Great feel for the game.

-Measured 5'11 without shoes last summer with just a 6'1 wingspan. Very undersized for a NBA point guard prospect. Not freakishly athletic to make up for it
-Not a prolific scorer, even at the AAU level. Looked very focused on finding the open man, which made perfect sense in this setting. Will need to find a better balance between scoring and playmaking as the competition stiffens.
-Lack of size can be somewhat of a hindrance as a scorer inside the arc.
-Can overdribble at times while teammates stand around. Will need to learn to be more efficient with his dribble as his career moves on
-Can defend when he wants to, but shows average intensity in that area at times
-Lack of size and length limits his long-term potential defensively

Outlook Was, in our view, head and shoulders the best point guard on the during the USA Basketball tryouts. College coach's dream. Great combination of toughness, smarts and unselfishness. Plays with confidence and poise. Lack of size limits his upside at the NBA level, but certainly doesn't rule him out depending on how his college career evolves.
