Kyle Anderson Player Profile

Evaluation: Anderson is simply a flat out winner. Anderson is the most versatile player high school basketball has seen in years because he is a 6’9 (that’s an official measurement by the way) point guard — and a great one at that. He has tremendous court vision and passing skills and has a knack for finding the open man and putting the ball in a place where his teammates can score from. Although he doesn’t have great speed, he consistently finds a way to get into the lane against both quicker and stronger guards. Anderson has a very high basketball-IQ and always makes smart decisions. He also effectively creates space between him and his opponent using a variety of moves. He has improved his ball-handling too and exhibits good body control. Outside of his offensive arsenal, Anderson rebounds well and uses his length intelligently on defense. However, he needs to work on becoming a better three-point shooter to take his game to the next level although he does have a solid mid-range game.
