|Maledon, Theo||France||6'5"||170||SG||6/12/01||First name is pronounced "Tay-o". …He has good speed. He is a 19 year-old kid playing in the EuroLeague (as good as it gets, outside the NBA.) Right handed. He is advanced for his age in finishing pick-n-roll plays. He shot 33% from beyond the arc this season, and he was at 77.6% FT. ...He is not an NBA ready Point Guard. He had 125 assists and 75 turnovers in 2019-20 across three different Leagues. He looks for his own shot more than he looks to set up teammates. Defensively, like most 19 year olds, he needs to add strength. …Maledon is a upside play by whoever drafts him. He averaged 7.2 points, 1.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game in Europe in 2019-20. He is very much still a kid. He comes across as a shy, but attentive player. We believe he will be selected in the middle of the first round but we don't expect him to impact the NBA in his early seasons.|
Our most sketchy advice: in 2001, the 37th pick was Mehmet Okur. We advised, "draft Nakeia Miller."
Our best advice: in 2003, the 37th pick was Travis Hansen. We advised, "draft Kyle Korver."
