Summary:

Denzel Andersson is an athletic combo forward that may project into a 3 and D type of role as a prospect for the NBA.  He didn’t really shoot well from beyond the arc last year and he does not often look for his own shot.

But so far, he has shot the ball well early this year, and he is a smart player that does a good job of moving off the ball on offense.  He may be a long shot to be drafted in 2018, but he could perhaps end up being like a Jonas Jerebko type of player if he does find his way into the association.​
