Division II College Star Being Described as Next Dwyane Wade
- Updated: May 16, 2019
Fans and media love to find a player comparison for every prospect entering the NBA draft.
Shaw University head coach Joel Hopkins believes that his player, Hinton, looks a lot like Wade when he entered the NBA out of college.
Hopkins understands what it takes to make it to the NBA. Players like Amar’e Stoudemire, Tracy McGrady, Marquis Daniels, Jarrett Jack and Ronald “Flip” Murray had all worked with Hopkins in the past.
“It was so obvious that he was a pro,” Hopkins says. “It wasn’t just us. No one in the country had an answer for him.”
Standing at 6-foot-5, Hinton is a pure scorer who lit up the Division II scene. He averaged 29.4 points per game during the 2018-19 season. It’s unclear where Hinton will go in the draft, if at all. However, he just might fly up draft boards if he lives up to the Dwyane Wade comparison.
