Scouting
  • Saunders has been the main cog on a terrific run from Harvard over the past three seasons, possessing a very complete game both offensively and defensively. Saunders relies a lot on his terrific feel for the game and craftiness to play a solid midrange game. It's something of an old man's game, but it's effective when paired with his terrific passing from the wing and solid rebounding. He might not be an NBA player, but if not he'll make a lot of money in Europe.
  • Saunders has a smart, versatile offensive game featuring an improving jump shot and an NBA frame at 6-5 with a 6-9 wingspan. It's a bit of an old man's game at times, relying on strength and power to get into the lane with his 220-pound body, but it's pretty effective with his strong passing ability and creativity. He also has some potential as a defender, as he's strong at getting into passing lanes and playing physical.
  • Most importantly, Saunders isn't the most explosive athlete around. His first step isn't great, which means he's going to be reliant on his jump shot to play in the NBA, which has been inconsistent throughout his career from distance. He needs to improve his defensive intensity at all times.
