Overall Rank: #17
Position (Rank): Shooting Guard (#4)
High School: Greenville (Georgia)
Evaluation: Caldwell-Pope has excellent range out to the NBA three-point line and has excellent size for a shooting guard, which he takes advantage of when he posts up small defenders. He is a prolific scorer and will launch a three no matter where he is on the court if you give him just a little bit of space. He is also very good at catching and shooting which makes him very dangerous if you leave him open for just a second. Some areas he needs to work on include his strength and ball-handling but he is surprisingly explosive when attacking the basket. His defensive game is also very good which elevates him above the other good prospects who just perform well on offense.
