NBA Comp for Razorback Anthony Black

Cade Cunningham, Detroit Pistons

The comparisons of Anthony Black to Cade Cunningham are eerily similar. Both very tall ball handlers that can pass, handle the ball, score and play defense at an elite level.

The Duncanville, Texas native is going to have a big height advantage over most college point guards if Musselman chooses to use him as the primary ball handler next season in Fayetteville.

Cunningham, in his rookie season in the NBA, was a consensus first team All-American as a freshman before being selected No. 1 overall in the 2021 NBA Draft.

If Black can be even a fraction of the player Cunningham was as a freshman, the Hogs are going to be in really good shape next season.

Black will work on his shooting and as it improves, so will his future draft stock.

Jonathan Wasserman of Bleacher Report on Anthony Black:

Black intrigues with ball-handling and passing skills for a 6’6″ wing, plus a crafty finishing package in the paint. How far away he looks as a shooter and decision-maker could determine whether he’ll enter the one-and-done discussion.
