Florida State win Devin Vassell announced on Monday that he will be declaring for the NBA draft.
A 6-foot-7, 190 pound wing from Georgia, Vassell was one of the biggest risers in this year’s draft class. He averaged 12.7 points for a Florida State program that went 11-deep this season, but what makes him an intriguing NBA prospect is his potential as a three-and-D wing.
He’s got the size and the length to be a good defender at the NBA level, and playing for Leonard Hamilton, you can be sure he is getting plenty of reps switching defensively and guarding bigger and smaller players. He’s not much of a playmaker, and at 190 pounds, he definitely needs to add some weight to his frame.
