2023 NBA Mock Draft: Spurs land franchise PG, tanking pays off for Pistons
Maxwell Lewis was once considered a possible lottery pick early in this year’s draft cycle and is still very much a 1st round prospect worth being excited over, even if he began to cool off toward the end of the regular season. At 6’7” with roughly a 6’10” wingspan, Lewis is a fluid ball-handler with legitimate three-level scoring upside.
While Lewis’ athleticism is increasingly becoming an important part of his success as a scorer, he still relies more on his craftiness to score, particularly in the midrange and around the rim. As he continues to adjust and become more in tune with his own length and athletic capabilities, his consistency both as a scorer and defender could dramatically improve.
Even more so than adjusting to his athleticism, though, improving as a playmaker will be important for Lewis if he is to ever reach his offensive ceiling.
