Washington Jr. studied at Ohio State University. He showed good scoring ability in his junior year, averaging 16 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists per game. He is the nephew of the famous Lakers “Old Fish” Fisher. His father Washington was a basketball player active in the 1980s and 1990s. He was selected by the Bullets and played in the Nets and Clippers.
What deserves the attention of the NBA is Washington Jr.’s shooting sight. His three-point shooting percentage in his three-year college career was 36%, which has always been stable. The bad thing is that his other scoring methods are terrible. His shooting percentage is only 40%. 4% higher than the three-pointer, a short guard who is less than 1.9 meters and can only shoot three-pointers is not what NBA teams want, and he is not very accurate. Little Washington needs to maintain a three-point sense and learn more scoring methods.
