Evaluation: Justin Anderson is the most underrated player in my mind in recent history. His energy and motor are unparalleled, his athleticism is close to unparalleled, his work ethic is among the best in the class and oh yeah, he plays defense, rebounds, gets to the basket at will, is a great leader and is developing a better perimeter shot. It boggles my mind that people don’t have this kid ranked higher and some don’t even consider him a top-50 prospect. However, there are some things he can work on to improve his game. He has done a terrific job developing a better perimeter shot and has great range but he needs to make sure he doesn’t stay out on the perimeter too much when he can get to the basket. He can also become a better ball-handler.
