John has solid length for the small forward position and he is quite springy around the basket. His biggest strength is the ability to shoot the basketball. He has a beautiful shooting touch and his mechanics are outstanding from behind the 3. He can face-up his defender and take him off the dribble and he has a decent burst as well. In addition, he'll demonstrate the ability to locate his teammates as he delivered a couple of nifty assists.
At this stage he'll need to improve the range on his jump shot for him to snag one of those remaining scholarships in the spring.
Green has slimmed down and as a result his game has transformed. He should now be considered a definite sleeper on the west coast due to the added versatility to his game.
