Fletcher Magee burst onto the national scene in the NCAA Tournament, after a standout performance in the opening round. It propelled Wofford to the second round, but their senior sharpshooter missed all 12 of his three-point attempts.

This caused the Terriers’ downfall, but they still impressed as a higher seed, instead of their usual place in the 10-to-16 seed range.

Magee is an interesting NBA prospect. As the League expands behind the arc, knockdown shooters like this are imperative towards a team’s makeup. If anything, they need multiple players of this caliber.

There is no question of Magee’s shooting ability. He’ll spot up for the San Antonio Spurs, who have employed three-point shooters to surround DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge, and hit them at a reasonable rate.

Otherwise, Magee’s value stops there. He’s not a plus defender, which will impact how often he sees the floor. In head coach Gregg Popovich’s system, this can be masked if only in spurts.

If Magee’s status was to stick as a second-rounder, the New York Knicks will have a chance. If the tournament helped this case, then he could slide into the top of Round 2 or the first 30 picks.
