Kyle Guy

The one and only Kyle Guy went from man bun to national champion over the course of his career at Virginia, and he was one of the most notable players in the NCAA Tournament due to his immensely clutch buckets against various teams.

Notably, Guy helped key two improbable comebacks against Purdue and Auburn in back-to-back rounds on the way to a thrilling national championship game against Texas Tech. Due to his heroics in the NCAA Tournament, Guy was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player.

Though many Virginia fans were surprised, Guy announced recently that he planned to enter the NBA Draft and also planned to keep his name in. While not widely regarded as a first round pick, this means the Atlanta Hawks will be able to select Guy in the second round.

Despite not having great size (6-foot-2, 175 pounds), Guy certainly gets lift on his jumper and his shot is a beautiful thing to view. Per College Basketball Reference, Guy shot 42.5 percent from deep in his Virginia career on a 55.5 percent three-point attempt rate – including a career-high 7.4 attempts per game in his 2018-19 junior season.

The Stepien’s shot chart tool also conveys that Guy is comfortable shooting from NBA range, as he went 79 of 187 (42.3%) from NBA range during the 2018-19 season.

While Guy might not be the best fit for the Atlanta Hawks as a smallish guard, his selection would certainly bring some headlines to the team on 2019 NBA Draft night, and we all know that Schlenk loves shooting.
