Dyson is a big lead guard that has the ability to finish in and around the lane with floaters and mid-range jumpers. He also can be a playmaker for his teammates, drawing attention in the lane and kicking out easy open attempts. He needs to improve his shot from behind the 3pt line and become more engaged on the defensive end.

NBA Academy’s Global – Atlanta, GA – 7/11 – 14/2019
Played with good pace, not overly quick but has a nice stop and go with a burst at the end which allows him to get into lane. Once in the lane he showed touch on floaters, after hitting a couple the bigs came out to contest and that’s when he made several drop off passes for assist. He also competed well on the defensive end, deflecting pass attempts and containing the ball handler.
Vs. College Park SkyHawks – College Park, GA – 1/21/2022
Offensively, his impact was minimal as a scorer, as he had a early post up to start the game off, and created off the dribble for an and1 in the 2nd half. He did do a good job of facilitating to his teammates picking up five assists for the game. As well as rebounds and defending on the perimeter.
Daniels truly shines in the defensive versatility metrics, ranking in the 74th percentile of wings. He does not foul often, forces turnovers, and spent most of his time on the opposing team's best ball handler. He is not without flaws, however. He allows opponents to shoot 50% from two when out of position.
This data was hand-tracked by AJ Wahl and Bryon Cook. Every single defensive possesion of each player's season was analyzed. This dataset includes all possessions when the defender is guarding on-ball, in man-to-man, and against a player not within their position group who shoots the ball, is fouled, or commits a turnover. The percentile listed above is a players standing compared to their postion group calculated by compliling and weighing various different metrics derrived from the hand-tracked data. This data only measures a portion of a player's impact, but it is clear that the ability to defend out of one's position group is a vital skill to contributing to winning basketball at the professional level.
