By Jake Winderman | July 18, 2018

Player: Trevon Bluiett

College: Xavier (2014-2018)

Height/Weight: 6-foot-6, 208 pounds

NBA Team: New Orleans Pelicans

College Breakdown: Trevon Bluiett spent four years at Xavier, earning numerous accolades at both the conference and national level. Bluiett was one of three players unanimously selected to the All-Big East First Team and was a Wooden Award finalist during his senior campaign, which is given to the top player in all of college basketball. Bluiett was a consensus Second-Team All-American and finished sixth in the Big East in scoring last year, averaging 19.3 points per game on 43.7 percent shooting from the field and 41.7 percent shooting from beyond the arc. The Indianapolis-product finished his collegiate career with the 3rd-most minutes played in Big East history and the 7th-most points scored. He’s also ranked 6th on the conference’s all-time offensive rating list. Bluiett shot above 42 percent from the field in all four of his seasons at Xavier.

Scouting Report: Bluiett is the true definition of a bucket-getter, and can score efficiently and in bulk at all three levels. His shooting opens up the floor for the rest of his teammates, while his playmaking helps facilitate solid offense whenever he’s on the court. Bluiett is a fairly good rebounder on both ends of the floor and can defend multiple positions with his blend of athleticism and size. He has the ability to play shooting guard or small forward, but will most likely end up as a small forward in the NBA/G League.
