Chris Duarte NBA Draft Profile
Chris Duarte is the ultimate 3-and-D player in the 2021 NBA Draft. His size and elite shooting makes him an NBA- ready talent. Duarte is engaged both on and off the ball on defense, and he is known for his hustle plays. He thrives on offense in catch-and-shoot situations, coming off of screens or in transition.
Duarte still lacks the speed to keep up with smaller guards on defense. He is also not capable of doing much more than catching and shooting on offense (although he does do that very well). Chris Duarte could fall in the NBA Draft due to his age; he will be 24 on draft night. As a 24-year-old myself, I remain hopeful of my chances of being drafted.
