Evaluation: Gesell is a terrific finisher around the bucket who can finish through contact or convert via his excellent floater. He’s a good scorer who can knock it down from both behind the three-point line as well as in the mid-range game. He is also surprisingly athletic and can finish above rim. Gesell has good body control in the lane too and is able to play off the ball in addition to the point. However, while he’s at the point guard position, he needs to distribute the ball better and do a better job of opening up scoring opportunities for his teammates.
