may have the most upside of any player in the 2021 NBA Draft as the 6-foot-5 guard possesses elite athleticism and scoring ability that make him an enticing option with one of the top picks.
As a senior at Prolific Prep (Napa, Calif.)
, Green was narrowly edged out for MaxPreps National Player of the Year honors after averaging 31.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and five assists per game. The Crew finished the season ranked No. 7 nationally.
Green spent his first three seasons of high school at San Joaquin Memorial (Fresno, Calif.)
, where he became the program's all-time leading scorer with 2,288 points in three seasons. He broke Prolific Prep's single-season scoring record as well with 1,008 points to end his high school career with 3,299 points.
The three-time MaxPreps All-American selection also had success with the USA Basketball, compiling a record
of 19-0 with gold medals in the FIBA Americas U16 Championships in 2017,
FIBA U17 World Championships in 2018 and FIBA U19 World Championships in 2019.
Last year in the NBA G League, the explosive guard averaged 17.9 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.8 assists per contest.
Green was selected second overall by the Houston Rockets in the 2021 NBA Draft Thursday night.
