An improved season along with his raw sills and great height for a guard, Tre Mann has made his way back into 1st round discussion. A solid athlete with a well rounded game, his shot could translate well to the NBA . If it does, then he could be a steal. NBA spacing could help Mann as he lacks elite athleticism to break the rim and put up those flashy finishes. One of the better playmakers and scorers in the draft, his small wingspan is what lets him down defensively, though, not through lack of effort. He moves well on and off ball defensively, however it seems that he will not be able to keep up with the more elite guards in that regard.
Still lacking in big bodies, you would be forgiven for thinking that taking another guard for a team that just drafted Jalen Green to add to a team with Kevin Porter Jnr., John Wall, Eric Gordon and DJ Augustine a mistake. However. There may be a big cultural and personal shift coming for the Rockets and it would be surprising if more than half of those names are still on the team but this time next year. The benefit of Tre is that he will be able to play either guard spot, where Green could play up a position at the 3 (with a bit more added bulk), and a future 3 headed guard rotation of KPJ, Green and Mann has the flexibility in it where the previous attempt (although with MVP talent) fell a little flat.
