SAN DIEGO, CAL - Scot Gauvin, a 3rd-year wing who flashed signs of a bright future last season, is a clear pick, to have a great season this year.

Everything about Gauvin shows why he was drafted 4th during overall in 2020, but sadly spent most of his rookie campaign in the D-League, waiting for a signaled indicating he was ready for a larger role. The 6'0" Point Guard saw his shooting accuracy climb when his offensive responsibilities increased. In 2 games, in 2020, Gauvin's field-goal percentage was 28.6 percent while hitting 33.3 percent from down town. During 18 games in 2021, of which he started 10, he shot 38.2 percent while hitting 32.8 percent of his 3s. 2023 he got his call and he showed he can play at the OBWL level. In 23 minutes per game averaged 7.9 Points, 3.5 Rebounds, 1.6 Assists, while improving to 39.3 percent from the field and 34 percent from deep.

2023 Storm hired Head Coach Irvin Dickerson, who inserted Gauvin into the the starting lineup as Shooting Guard with Jose Lakes running the Point. Which turned into his break out season for Gauvin, in 31 minutes he averaged 13.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 44.4% from the field and 41.5% from 3, while attempting 4.1 3s.

Even more encouraging, his in 31 games he managed to scored 15 or more points, in 12 of which he scored 20 or more. Gauvin was rotating between the Point and Shooting Guard, though he is a great ball handle he lacks court vision and tend to pull up for the shot rather than setup his teammates. Never the less improvements across the board on his pre-2023 stats. And hopefully Storm can find him a Guard who will allow Gauvin to become a set shooter at the 2. Regardles, Gauvin should be able to average 15 Points per Game with ease in the upcoming 2024 season.
