Stevens is a combo forward who gets most of his production 15′ and in. He has a power game at the free throw line where he can create shots with footwork and spin moves. He has a good feel for the game. He has gained weight since last year, which I think takes him out of the true wing conversation. He averaged 15 points and 7 rebounds on the circuit.

Stevens played the highpost forward spot here. He finished inside around the rim. Stevens is a good athlete who has good size, strength.

Stevens is a real deal athlete on the wing. On consecutive possessions this is what we saw him do tonight: drive to his right hand to finish emphatically in the lane in traffic, he then sprints the floor to clap the backboard and swat a shot. He showed real inside-out skill as he posted and handled on the perimeter.

Stevens is a long wing capable of making custom essay station discount code plays around the rim using his bounce/athleticism. His build puts me in the mind of Malachi Richardson (2015/Syracuse verbal). Stevens is not as good of a perimeter shooter as Richardson given this eval.
