I really really like Rivers. He could put on a little bit of weight... but he's gonna be extremely good.

I dont think he will be the BEST prospect next year, but he will definitely be a good player in college and NBA

I've watched a couple of his high school games.

He's a really good shooter (pro range) with some moves that a player his age could only learn by having a father who played in the pros. Rivers is very competitive and can score in bunches. Has a good wingspan.

However, he plays poor defense and isn't much of a passer or a next level athlete. He also generates most of his moves going right and hasn't developed his dribbling enough to score going left consistently. The worst thing I've read about him is that he's a pouter and isn't the easiest guy to play with. Something you don't always hear about in the prep rankings unless it's a frequent trait.

The Austin Rivers I don't really like is starting to show his face. Sour-puss attitude, dominatnig ball, terrible shots, no effort at all. -Jonathan Givony President of DraftExpress

I don't know if he's done growing, but at 6'4" he'll need to work on his passing and dribbling ASAP, because he's not blazing fast or super athletic. Duke has a great offense for shooters and he should excel in their offense. Duke is also good at masking most of their shooters shortcomings... namely defense.

In highschool he always guarded the opposing clubs best scorer. He put the straps on 'em and played some good defense from what I saw. theres no question about his abilities on the offensive side of the ball besides his obvious preference to attack from the right side of the floor.

Good scorer, pathetic defender

Overall: Good prospect, but NOT #1 unless the draft stock is crap

His offensive game is mean, I haven't seen enough about him to say about his defensive game - but it sounds like he's a defensive slouch.

Ive saw his game once.He reminded me of a lesser talented kobe.

He can play defence.Only when he wants to.
He is clutch.
sometimes he takes the stupidest shots.
He dominates the ball.

With all that says,he is still good
