He’s a bit undersized for his position, but he’s shown great strength down in the paint defending, and his lankiness has been a plus on both sides of the ball. He’s won’t be dishing out five assists a game any time soon, but he’s also not the prototypical big who can only play with their back to the basket.
5. Theo Maledon, G, Oklahoma City Thunder
At times Maledon looks like he could develop into a good fit alongside Shai Gilgeous-Alexander in the backcourt, as he’s able to play off the ball and knock down 3s at a high clip. He’s not as flashy a facilitator as SGA, but he has a great feel for just making the correct pass and finding guys at the right time to get a bucket.
