Meet Jamal Coombs-McDaniel
Jamal Coombs-McDaniel is a versatile, 6-6 and 195 pounds, small forward that can play the point as well. He possesses great floor vision and is always around the ball during clutch situations. He has a knack for attacking the basket, but has a tendency to get in trouble with pump faking and double clutching while in the air. With his aggressive play, he draws plenty of fouls. He needs to get stronger and work on his post play and rebounding. He isn’t the most athletic player and doesn’t have incredible hops, but he is smart with the ball and is a vocal leader on and off the court, especially on defense. His shot isn’t perfect and tends to thrust his elbow out and have a flat shot when he misses, but he has steadily improved each year.
