KRYSTEN PEEK: Johnny Davis is a 6'5" guard out of Wisconsin and was the most improved player in college basketball this past season. He averaged nearly 20 points and 8 rebounds per game during his sophomore season from just 7 points and 4 rebounds his freshman year. Davis is a great facilitator when getting in the lane and finds teammates seamlessly off impossible reads.

His perimeter shooting needs some work after only averaging 30% from deep this past season. Davis reminds scouts of former Gonzaga point guard, Jalen Suggs, who went fifth overall to the Orlando Magic last year. Both players are gritty playmakers who will do anything to win games. Davis's draft range is anywhere from 7 to 12, and as a player who will continue to rise in the NBA and hasn't come close to reaching his full potential.
