Mamukelashvili has a unique game. At 6'9", 240 lbs., he can legitimately handle the ball and create offense. The big left-hander was the 2020-21 Big East Player of the Year. He averaged 17.5 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game in 2020-21. He shot 33.6% from beyond the college arc, and he made 71.4% at the line. Seton Hall was slightly defensively better with Mamukelashvili on the floor. ...We expect "Mamu" to be selected late in round two. ...We think, as-is, he is capable of being a backup NBA stretch four. If he can improve his shooting percentages and learn to share it a bit more, he rockets into a different tier.
Our best advice: in 2002, the 56th pick was Randy Holcomb. We advised, "draft Udonis Haslem."
