Peachtree Hoops continues its 2021 NBA Draft scouting report series with a look at the highly touted Australian prospect, guard Josh Giddey.

Josh Giddey is a 19-year-old 6’8 Australian lead guard prospect who played last season for the Adelaide 36ers in the NBL. While there’s still lots of areas for improvement in his offensive game, his ability to distribute and handle the ball at his size is extremely appealing and a lot of what makes him a projected Top-10 pick come Thursday evening.

Giddey is ranked as the No. 12 prospect in the 2021 class by Sam Vecenie, while ESPN ranks him as the 11th best player on their best available.

To paint the picture of how much of Giddey’s offensive output is dependent on creating for others, he ranked in the 90th percentile in the NBL per Synergy when including assists, generating 1.33 points per possession.
