Scouting Report

A monster jump in offensive production from his freshman to sophomore seasons was a big reason Mitchell decided leave to Louisville. The potential associated with that improvement is what could make this already stellar defender a late lottery pick with the chance to be a consistent contributor at the next level. Over 31 games with five starts in 2015-16, Mitchell averaged 7.4 points, 3.4 boards and 1.7 assists. A year later, Mitchell was given the chance to shine, and he made the most of the opportunity and added responsibility. As a sophomore, Mitchell averaged a team-high 15.6 points to go with 4.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists while starting 33 of 34 games for the 25-9 Cardinals. Though Mitchell's shooting percentage fell from 44.2 percent as a freshman to 40.8, he took 254 more shots but also made 35.4 percent of his 3-point attempts this season. While the obvious progression for Mitchell's cause came on the offensive end, the most advanced area of his game is on defense. Considered a defensive specialist who might be able to find an immediate spot in an NBA rotation, Mitchell possesses solid lateral footwork, is quick when guarding in the open court or on the ball and is a great leaper who will out-jump taller, lazier opponents for rebounds. Scouts like his tenacity and work ethic. He hustles at both ends and is willing to learn, which will come in handy while trying to fine-tune his offensive game. Mitchell likely won't be a 15-to-20 point-per-game scorer, but if he can embrace the fact his early value comes as a defender, he might get the chance to show his worth at the other end sooner rather than later.
