Jahmi’us Ramsey

You know the stereotype of the guy who shoots better behind the 3-point line than he does at the free throw stripe? Jahmi’us Ramsey is that guy.

The freshman out of Texas Tech shot an impressive 42.6 percent from deep, yet an abysmal 64.1 percent from the charity stripe, leaving scouts wondering which stat is accurate and which stat is the flute.

Ramsey is more than just a shooter. His drives to the basket are tough to defend, however, this aggressiveness can lend to him playing a bit out of control at times.

He’s also not the best passer and had more turnovers than assists this season with the Red Raiders.

Still, his shooting ability (at least from 3) is certainly worthy of attention from many teams in the mid to late first round. My hunch is that if he went to a school like Kentucky, Duke, or Kansas, his stock would be a little higher.

Could that translate to a value pick for the Suns? Not at #10, probably, but if they were to trade back, Ramsey might be a worthy target to consider.
