NY2LA: 2017 point guard Nick Weatherspoon shows scoring arsenal

MEQUON, Wisc. -- The best performance of Friday at the NY2LA Summer came from Mississippi native Nick Weatherspoon, who torched the nets from long distance and showed an impressive scoring arsenal.

Evaluation Notes

Already recognized as one of the best point guards in the 2017 class, Nick Weatherspoon backed it up at the NY2LA Summer Jame.

In a match up with Howard Pulley on Friday, Weatherspoon was sensational. Despite a tough loss, Weatherspoon did all he could to help try and propel MBA Hoops to a victory.

Weatherspoon has good speed and a tremendous burst, especially in the open court. His first step is quick, his handle is tight and he does a great job of creating space for jump shots.

Weatherspoon is one of the best pull-up jump shooters in the 2017 class. He’s able to pull-up on a dime and is effective doing so from mid-range out to three. Against Pulley, Weatherspoon buried five three-pointers and most were off the dribble.

To go with his ability to make jump shots, Weatherspoon is consistently looking for ways to get into the paint to try and finish at the rim or kick out to open teammates.

Weatherspoon is currently regarded as the No. 33 overall prospect and the No. 8t point guard in the 2017 class.
