Outlook

This guy received a first round promise for a reason.

Chandler Hutchison is similar to another prospect in this draft, Keita Bates-Diop. Where they differ; however, is athleticism. Hutchison can jam it on you and loves to do so. Yet, his game has a great amount of touch to it, as he will use his footwork to get by defenders and to the rim. What is impressive about Hutchison was how he reworked his shot to become a better spot-up shooter behind the arc. Hutch looks like a 3 and D wing who can guard 4s as well. You may not want him switching onto guards, however. Still, the Boise State product has a well-rounded game with a skill set to make any team better. He has a good mental approach to his game too, and is incredibly coachable. It is rumored that the Bulls have promised to take Hutchison in the late first, and if they do, they have a good one on their hands. Hutchison can break through his ceiling if he further develops his handle in order to create his own shot.
