RJ Hunter the junior guard from Georgia State, has entered his name into the 2015 NBA draft. Hunter played for his father, Ron, and helped lead the 14th seeded Panthers to an upset over third-seeded Baylor in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

RJ averaged 19.7 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists this past season and is expected to be a fringe lottery pick. If he can show he is the deadly shooter most scouts believe him to be, his stock could rise closer to the draft. The NBA has shown to love pure shooters in the draft lately, a recent example being Nik Stauskas drafted eighth overall last year to the Kings.  Based on the limited tape I have seen on Hunter, his game translates to the pros more than Stauskas’ coming out of Michigan, one year ago.

As the NBA draft closes in, keep an eye out for Hunter as a sleeper prospect that can make an impact as a rookie for an NBA team.
