Here’s a look at a multitude of players who impressed in Orlando, including ESPN 100 difference-makers, prospects with the most untapped potential and recruits with the brightest futures.

Jones' court vision, passing and decision-making are just a few reasons he’s special. The way he makes plays off the screen and roll is beyond his years. He also knocks down open shots and makes free throws when the game is on the line.
