Scouting Report

OVERVIEW
Garland is a player who creates for himself and for teammates, yet he qualifies as somewhat of a mystery. He makes things happen and that's going to be one of his biggest assets, receiving high marks for quickness and energy.
He missed a huge portion of his only college season with a knee injury, so he was counting on draft workouts to bolster his standing. He averaged 16.1 points in five games.
As a point guard on a Vanderbilt team that was last in the Southeastern Conference, there will be concerns about his ability to direct a team, though his absence might be connected to the Commodores' struggles.
At 6-foot-2 and 175 pounds, he won't overwhelm others with physical attributes. He'll need his offense to carry him until he gains enough experience to showcase other areas.
ANALYSIS
It will be considered a bit of a gamble for Garland to be drafted too high. Without much college background, selling the selection to fans will be one of the tasks for whatever NBA team takes him.
At the same time, his ceiling suggests the pick won't be a real risk in this draft. There's lots of confidence from NBA evaluators in his ability to be a long-range threat and create all the way to the rim.
He was projected to be a one-and-done college player so he's following through on that part. He gained a reputation prior to college as being a savvy player and that's an intangible that scouts generally have embraced.
He'll have to prove his durability, especially for a player without a full season above the high school level. He won't turn 20 years until January 2020.
Projection: Top 10 pick
