The bottom half of tier three is dominated by forwards and centers. Grant Williams the two-time SEC player of the year, tops this part of the tier. He’s a ball handing big man that is good at facilitating, particularly from the elbow areas. Some say that he plays a style similar to Warriors All Star forward Draymond Green. Forwards Cameron Johnson and Dylan Windler are next at 17 and 18. Both men are marksmen from outside, shooting well over 40 percent from downtown. The difference is Johnson played against a much higher level of competition in the ACC. Although he did not face the same level of competition, Windler has proven to be a better rebounder and has more abilities off the dribble than Johnson. Neither man is a good defender.

Centers Daniel Gafford and Jaxson Hayes are similar players in that both men are extremely mobile and athletic for their size. They beat most big men down the floor in transition regularly. Gafford is a much better rebounder at this stage. Neither men are good shooters, but the younger Hayes is projected to be able develop a shot due to his good free throw shooting. However Hayes is projected to be a top ten pick, yet is very raw. Click the clue link under his name to see the reasons why I do not believe he is the ideal fit for Atlanta.
