Springer showed his shooting ability once again this weekend. His size and specialty to shoot from the perimeter make him a great asset for his team. He showed he could work in the ball screen action as a pick and pop option proving that he can punish defenses for doubling off of him. On the defensive end, he is a capable position defender. Although he will never be a lock down on the perimeter, he rarely gets exposed because of his footwork and understanding of how to play.

When evaluating forwards like Springer, they usually end up being classified into one of two categories: rebounders or shooters. The unique thing about the 6-6 Springer is that he earns check marks in both boxes. As he showed at the Top 40 Workout, he proved that he can be deadly from the ‘trail 3’ spot where he can knock down jumpers on the reversal. However, it was his aggressiveness and strength that turned our staff’s heads. Springer is a shooter by nature, but he has improved his athleticism in the past year to make him a dual threat player.
