Dylan Windler, Late First Round/Early Second Round

We have previously mentioned Dylan Windler out of Belmont in numerous different articles. Of course, Windler is most noted for his three-point marksmanship and was listed as one of the best three-point shooters in this draft.

Windler has also been highlighted as an underrated prospect for the Atlanta Hawks in the 2019 NBA Draft, and he was recently linked to the team at #35 overall in our Hawks-only Mock Draft that released earlier this month.

Certainly, the combination of Windler’s wing size (6-foot-8, 200 pounds) combined with his off-the-dribble ability (25.7% usage rate per Sports Reference) and terrific three-point shooting (career 40.6% shooter from deep) make Windler an enticing choice in the second round for the Atlanta Hawks – or any team looking for a three-point shooting specialist in the 2019 NBA Draft.

Of course, Windler is not just a one-trick-pony, as he also qualified for our list of best rim finishers in the 2019 NBA Draft class – the only player that was featured on our at-rim and three-point shooting lists.

With a limited sample size (23 attempts), The Stepien showcases Windler’s ability to knock down the three-ball from NBA range with a lofty 47.8 percent clip from the NBA line.

In his senior year, Windler attempted over 7 three-pointers a game and connected on those shots at an impressive 42.9 percent clip per Sports Reference. Combine those numbers with the fact that 88.4 percent of those triples were assisted and they accounted for 51.4 percent of Windler’s shots (per Bart Torvik), and you have the makings of one of the best shooters in this draft class that would fit pretty much anywhere.

However, we know GM Schlenk loves shooters, so let’s hope he values Windler’s combination of at-rim and three-point efficiency rather highly.
