Jaden Springer Highlights
Jaden Springer NBA Draft Profile
At just 18 years old, Jaden Springer is already built for the NBA. His ability to put his head down and get to the rim is remarkable for a player his age. Springer also possesses a reliable jump shot, excellent decision-making, and a competitive drive that results in many ‘winning plays’ on the defensive end. Springer is a guy that every team should look to have; he is vocal on defense, hustles for loose balls, and a tremendous feel for the game.
For as much as Springer can bring to the table, he lacks some qualities that will hold him back in the league if ignored. For example, Springer’s jump shot release takes too long which allows for defenders to close out on him more easily. Springer is obviously a good shooter so on one hand, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. However, in the NBA, a slow release could impact the way he is able to play offensively. Springer’s size also comes with a price; he does not have a quick first step or powerful burst when attacking the rim.
