The Boston Celtics selected guard JD Davison with the 53rd pick in the 2022 NBA draft.
Davison played one season in Alabama. The 19-year-old security guard turns 20 on October 3.
The 6-foot-3 guard played in 33 games as a freshman with six starts. He averaged 8.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 4.3 assists in 25.8 minutes per game. Davison also averaged 2.9 turnovers per game.
As a shooter, Davison has been up and down. He finished the field overall with a very solid 46.3%. But Davison shot just 30.1% on 2.5 three-point attempts per game. He made his 72.8% from the free throw line.
Here’s a video from our own Coach Spins that breaks down Davison’s game:
Davison’s first name is Jerdarrian. A native of Alabama, he was born in Fort Deposit, Alabama and attended Calhoun High School in Letohatchee, Alabama.
Davison was the 54th player on Sam Vecenie’s big board for The Athletic. According to Vecenie, Davison is a top athlete making “wow” games for a guard his size. On offense, Davison lacks polish, which leads to turnovers. He’s also not a great marksman, as his stats show.
