The 203cm point guard brings athleticism and size to his position which are just some of the likable attributes Giddey possesses.
Grant Kelley, 36ers Chairman, was impressed with Josh’s ‘humility, presence, and maturity’ for such a young player.
He ‘has the right make-up mentally and skill-wise to be a dominant player in the NBA’ Kelley continued.
“I know that playing in the NBL has more than prepared me for the next level, so I’m ready to take that jump and enter the 2021 NBA Draft,” Giddey stated to ESPN
“The 36ers have done a great job developing me, and have put a lot of work into my game over the entire time I’ve been here.”
