2. Jamaree Bouyea, San Francisco
Playing for the Dons rarely gives you a spotlight, but Bouyea managed to become must-see TV this season. USF had one of the best years in program history in 2021-22., and Bouyea’s sudden improvement on offense was a huge reason why.
Bouyea averaged 17.3 points per game to go in hand with 5.0 rebounds and 4.0 dimes dished out per contest. No one has played in or won more games for the Dons than Bouyea, who has been bouncing around the league with a bunch of different private workouts.
Jamaree Bouyea could relieve Fred VanVleet on the Toronto Raptors.
The biggest issue with Bouyea right now concerns his frame. Ths skinniness made him a so-so defender in college, which could take some backbreaking work to overcome at the professional draft level. No wonder Bouyea is regarded by many as a potential undrafted free agent.
Bouyea is an impressive scorer, and Toronto has already shown through players like VanVleet that they can turn smaller guards into quality shooters at the NBA level. If he packs on more pounds, Bouyea could be a steal.
