Scoot Henderson is widely expected to be the No. 2 overall pick in the 2023 NBA draft, behind Victor Wembanyama.
And while Henderson is often compared to veteran Russell Westbrook, one NBA executive recently told HoopsHype that the G League Ignite guard has a "better shot right now" than the Los Angeles Clippers point guard:
"One of the coaches last year on the G League Ignite said Scoot was the best player they had. That was a year ago. I knew he was a guy you had to watch. I've never heard anything negative about him. He's got a chance to be really good. He's got a better shot right now than Russell Westbrook, who he gets compared to."
Henderson has improved his shooting this season with the Ignite. In 11 regular season games, he's averaging 17.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 1.3 steals while shooting 45.5 percent from the floor and 28.0 percent from deep.
