Atlanta, GA (Future150) -- The Memphis Royals (TN) were awarded gold at Future150 Main Event Atlanta after taking down Rock Nation 87-69 on Sunday afternoon in 16U. Which prospects stood out in the age division?
Justin Wright, 2019 SF, Memphis Royals (TN) - A freak athlete, Wright helped his team to win the 16U division with his ability to finish at the rim and hit a couple of timely three pointers. At 6-foot-2, he has a powerful frame and was able to absorb contact and still be effective. He will be an intriguing option coming out of Memphis as time goes on.
Latrell Marshall, 2019 PF, Rock Nation (SC) - Marshall is a big time rebounder due to the fact that he's built like a linebacker. He finished around the rim and was able to be a force on both ends of the floor. At 6-foot-5, his recruitment will be decided by how much more he grows.
Justin Miles, 2019 CF, Atlanta Select (GA) - This time last year Miles was more of a center than power forward, and now he looks as though he may ultimately end up being a stretch-four . He has improved his shooting in a big way, while still being a shot blocking presence. At 6-foot-7, this development is a promising one, and Miles remains an intriguing option.
Kadon Moore, 2019 PG, Rock Nation (SC) - A hard-nosed lead guard with a lightning quick first step, Moore first appeared on the radar at last year's Atlanta Main Event. He is a physical defender who has great hands and gets into passing lanes. He has also improved as a shooter and looks like a nice D2 option or maybe even a low-major.
Dionte Anding, 2019 SG, Memphis Royals (TN) - One of the best shooters of the entire weekend, Anding helped his team bring home the Gold Division championship. He has range well past the college three point line and had multiple 20+ point games over the weekend.
Davious Munroe, 2019 SF, Elite Playmakers (GA) - An intriguing wing prospect who knocked down a number of shots and got to the rim, Munroe showed a decent amount of promise. He is a versatile defender who can be used as a secondary ball handler as well.
Cameron Carraway, 2019 SG, SC Focus (SC) - Carraway is a smooth scoring guard who made a living knifing his way to the rim and hitting floaters. A 6-foot-2 combo guard, his vision is good, but he doesn't quite have the handle to break down defenders just yet.
Jaiden Diamond, 2019 PG, Atlanta Hoop Starz (GA) – Diamond has good size for a lead guard at 6’1” and has no problem getting into the lane and playing through contact. He is capable of knocking down the three point shot and loves to find teammates for easy buckets in transition. Once he becomes a more consistent defender and continues to shape his offense, Diamond has a chance to be a D2/D1 prospect.
Cadavius Gary, 2019 CF, Team Agnew (SC) – Gary was a workhorse for his squad throughout pool play games on Saturday as he ran the floor well, finished around the rim, and collected plenty of rebounds. He’s undersized at 6’3” but his motor and energy allowed him to be one of most active players whenever when he was on the floor.
Gregory Lawson, 2019 PG, Warner Robbins Express (GA) – Lawson had a big game on Saturday morning during pool play against Team Agnew. Even though his team lost, Lawson showcased his sweet stroke from deep and good ball-handling abilities. He doesn’t have great size or strength but he is a great floor general that can score from all three levels and find open teammates for easy buckets.
