Our first shooter comes with a bit of a caveat: Due to his brilliant final season on the North Carolina Tar Heels, fifth-year senior Cameron Johnson is widely expected to be taken in the late first round – meaning the Hawks will be unable to select him.

Even still, this list would not be complete with the sweet-shooting antics of the veteran college player.

Johnson had the best shooting season of his college career in 2018-19, producing a 45.7 percent clip from deep on a 50.2 percent three-point attempt rate (on nearly 6 attempts per game) per College Basketball Reference.

With good size at 6-foot-9 and 210 pounds, Johnson was able to get his shot off over smaller defenders due to his height and he was also lethal running off screens and vaulting down the court for transition triples – which is how the Tar Heels like to play.

Per The Stepien’s shot chart tool, Johnson showcased his versatile jump shot in a variety of ways, and his stats from the NBA three-point line look to be excellent as well. Johnson shot 75 of 162 on three-pointers from NBA distance, good for a 46.3 percent clip.

Though Johnson will be an extremely old rookie (23.2 years old on draft night), there’s no question his floor is high, and there will always be a place in the NBA for a knockdown shooter.
