Of all the prospects expected to be drafted in the top 10, Jonathan Isaac was the one given the smallest chance to showcase his skill-set on offense. As part of a veteran Florida State team that had Xavier Rathan-Mayes and Dwayne Bacon ahead of him in the pecking order, he had no shot creation responsibility/opportunity and posted only a 20.3% usage rate last season.
Nonetheless, the six-foot-10 combo forward is ranked ninth in the Draft Express’ top 100.
That’s the case because Isaac was given the chance to showcase his versatility on defense due to Florida State employing multiple coverages against the pick-and-roll and did well enough for most to envision him as a very valuable chess piece in an era of basketball where flexibility is starting to become a priority.
Florida State allowed just 95.1 points per 100 possessions with him on the floor, as he led a team in defensive rating that ranked 31st in the country in adjusted defensive efficiency.
