Overview
A big power guard who plays with frenetic pace and shows great vision as a passer. Has all the physical tools you look for in an NBA prospect and should develop into a first round prospect under coach Self.

Strengths
Grimes is a big, broad-shouldered combo guard who has good handles, nice quickness and is a load for opposing point guards to handle. He plays an attacking style and is always a threat to take it to the hole. He's got a quick first step and a lot of wiggle for a big guard.

His ability to finish in the lane is impressive. He can elevate for the highlight reel dunk and does a nice job of adsorbing contact and handing in the air longer than the defender. He scores on scoop shots and reverse layups, making the game look easy.

Shows a nice crossover and really knows how to get defenders off balance.

Has solid form on his jumper and should develop into a solid three point shooter from NBA range. Can hit the step-back jumper and does a nice job of getting separation.

Grimes is dangerous in transition thanks to his size, speed and ball-handling ability. Shows true point guard skills and does a good job of rewarding his front-court players with easy buckets.

Weaknesses
Lacks effort and intensity on the defensive end. Swipes at the ball too often and needs to do a better job of sliding his feet and playing fundamentally sound defense, and giving better effort.

Needs to get better with his three point accuracy and get a quicker release on his jumper.

Comparisons
Antonio Daniels and Emmanuel Mudiay. A better Frank Williams.

Projection: mid first round pick in the 2019 or 2020 NBA Draft
