Myles Powell, Guard, Seton Hall

Myles Powell is a phenomenal scorer, can we just start there? Look, say what you want about Seton Hall’s competition in the Big East, but scoring over 2,000 points in a division I college career is incredible.

17 games through his 2019-20 Senior campaign, the 6’2 guard has posted 22 points, two assists, five rebounds, and a steal per game. As well as a 34 percent three-point average, Hall has been nothing short of phenomenal. I can not wait to see him down the stretch of this season.

Hall has never averaged less than 10 points per game in his entire career, and last season he put up 23 points per contest. An 11 point per game scorer off the bench during his freshman year, Powell is one of the best players to ever come through Seton Hall.

Prior to the season, I had Myles Powell criminally low. I am ashamed to admit that he was in my bottom five of the top 60 prospects for this NBA Draft class prior to the start of the season.

Now? I truly believe Myles Powell’s floor is Jalen Brunson. Brunson, was also a college veteran, spending three years at Villanova prior to being selected by the Dallas Mavericks in the second round of the 2018 NBA Draft.

Brunson’s age was a huge hit to his draft stock, even despite his two titles, All-Region teams, All-Tournament teams, Player of the Year award (in the same conference that features Myles Powell), and his 18, three, and four-season as a Freshman. Brunson still fell to the second round.

Since being drafted Jalen Brunson has started 46 games for the Dallas Mavericks and provided a huge lift off the bench in games he did not get the starting nod. He averages eight points per contest and three assists per game for his career to go along with a pair of rebounds each game.

A solid three-point shooter, but not great by any means at just 34 percent, but yet the Mavericks still value everything he brings to the table.

Brunson is a huge part of their rotation and has been involved in each trade rumor the Mavericks have had pass through, showing his value around the league.

That is the floor for Myles Powell I believe. I am not sure who can make a bigger leap on my big board than from bottom five of the top 60, to about 35 on the board. His season has been awesome, and he has done it against some of the nation’s top competition, like Michigan State.
