    Scoot Henderson's arrival sparks Ignite

    Hopefully you read Howard Beck’s recent feature on top prospect Scoot Henderson, who joined the G League Ignite this season as a 17-year-old who’s not even eligible for the draft until 2023. The 6' 2" Henderson made his debut for Ignite Nov. 17, helping lead them to their first win. It’s not a coincidence that their team has been much more competitive ever since. As it turns out, Henderson is not only precocious, but he’s ready to be a difference-maker: there was chatter that he was Ignite’s best long-term prospect, but it looks like he’s already the team’s best player. He posted a remarkable 31-point performance on Nov. 26 in an overtime loss to a Santa Cruz Warriors team that included rookies Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody on assignment. The NBA has been buzzing about Henderson behind the scenes for the past several days, and Ignite picked up its second win on Sunday. Henderson scored 22 points with 10 rebounds and eight assists.

    Let’s frame it this way: Ignite has three projected 2022 first-rounders on the roster in Jaden Hardy, Dyson Daniels and MarJon Beauchamp. Henderson is a year younger than Daniels, about 15 months younger than Hardy, and more than two years younger than Beauchamp, and he’s already clearly on a different level athletically than all of them. He looks like the type of player where the hyperbole actually matches what you’re seeing: Henderson has grown-man speed and explosiveness and a handle to match, allowing him to get downhill with velocity and finish. He doesn’t make a ton of mistakes with the ball and is showing signs of improvement with his jumper. And there’s a distinct level of cool to the way he carries himself. Ignite has been bringing him off the bench, but it doesn’t matter: they badly need him to be competitive.

    Henderson looks like an unusually complete prospect for someone his age, and the upside here is immense. I sat in on one of his workouts while in Las Vegas back in the spring and was impressed with his physicality, but seeing him put it to use in game action has been eye-opening. He doesn’t play much defense yet and has much more to add in terms of polish, but expect the hype around him to grow in a real way as Ignite’s season rolls on. France’s Victor Wembanyama remains the firmly projected top pick for 2023, but Henderson may be right behind him.

    Love this kid's game. He has the physical tools, mindset/aggressiveness, and skillset to be great. His mid-range jumper is smooth, but his 3-ball looks to still be developing. If that comes around (which is entirely possible with his hunger/form), he's going to be scary. Looking forward to seeing him in the 2023 Draft -- he's likely a Top-2 or 3 guy as of now.

    The draft eligibility rules still need reform.

    Looks like Derrick Rose 2.0 in the best way possible.

    Is Scoot Henderson the best NBA Draft Prospect in the World?

    Chad Ford and Howard Beck talk about who could be the best 17 year old out there right now.


    I'm paying attention !!!!!!

    Paolo in 22 and Scoot in 23. Rockets should be ready after that

    So you want players drafted before they graduate High school?

    Henderson is very intriguing. Another less talked about guard that may be available this year would be Shaedon Sharpe. Considering how small the Rockets already are you would have to move some pieces to add any more backcourt prospects/talent - like moving KPJ to an off ball position (which I would be fine with, but is the team ready to start tinkering with their "alignment"?). Would have to seriously consider if the ROX get moved off the top 3-4 draft slots.

    I know the intensity and commitment to defense in these games isn't quite there, but Scoot going up against guys like Ant, Lamelo, and Haliburton is gonna be fun. If he shows out, the hype is gonna skyrocket.
