Nah’Shon Hyland Highlights
Nah’Shon Hyland Draft Profile
Nah’Shon Hyland broke out during his sophomore collegiate season at VCU. He was one of the top players in the Atlantic 10 Conference this past season and shot up 2021 NBA Draft boards as a result. Hyland has smooth ball-handling skills and an explosive first step. He isn’t afraid of taking the ball and looking to score. He has an uncanny ability to shoot the 3-ball off the dribble. Hyland has excellent speed off the bounce and his athleticism enables him to finish in a number of ways at the rim.
Coming out of college, Hyland is more of a score-first point guard as opposed to a floor general. He will need to get better at facilitating offensive looks for his teammates at the next level. While he does have sound skills defensively, an additional concern lies in his size. Hyland will need to add some muscle to his 165-pound frame if he is to become a true lockdown defender at the NBA level.
