Emmanuel Mudiay – 6’5, 200 lbs. Point Guard (International)

Strengths: A high-profile recruit out of high school who missed out on national exposure by opting to play professionally in China, where he spent most of the season nursing an ankle injury, instead. Did showcase his great size, ball handling ability and athleticism when in action though. Strong for a point guard. Capable of contributing in a variety of ways. Athletic.

Weaknesses: Limited body of work. Still harnessing point guard skills, can be turnover prone at times. Jump shot lacks consistency and range.

NBA Comparison: Damian Lillard

Anonymous Coach’s NBA Comparison: James Harden (best case),  Tyreke Evans (worst case)

Draft range projection: Top five
