Position: Shooting Guard

Strengths: R.J. Hunter has great size for the two-guard position. Hunter is a great spot up shooter and scary in catch-and-shoot situations. Hunter is a deadly shooter when his feet are set and has deep NBA range. Hunter sees the floor well and sets his teammates up well. Hunter has a high basketball IQ and makes the right basketball play. Hunter is a smart defender with quick hands. Hunter plays with high confidence and doesn’t shy away from the big shot. Hunter is an above-average rebounder for his position. Hunter shot 85.3 percent from the free throw line. R.J. Hunter comes from a good family and has zero off-the-court issues.
Weaknesses: R.J. Hunter is very thin and will have to add some upper-body strength. Hunter has to do a better job of creating his own shot. Hunter isn’t the best athlete and struggles at times against better competition. Hunter also has a problem against bigger players due to his wiry frame. Hunter will be 22 years old in October.
Projection: R.J. Hunter is a first round pick due to his high bball intelligence and ability to give you instant offense from anywhere. Hunter has a pure shot and elite shooting potential. There are some concerns, but I see Hunter being a starter at the next level and a possible All-Star at some point in his career. We haven’t seen the best from this coach's son.
