Dallas Mavericks 2017 NBA Draft Big Board 4.0
The 18 year old point guard out of France could be the biggest wildcard of the NBA Draft.
The first thing to stick out about Ntilikina is his body frame at point guard. He is 6’5″ and weighs 170 pounds. More importantly, he has a rumored wingspan of 7’0″ which is crazy for a point guard.
The knock against Ntilikina used to be his outside shooting, but after shooting over 40% from behind the arc last season in France, he has squashed out that weakness in his game. The biggest question mark at this point is his skinny frame and ability to make plays for the offense.
The opinions vary on Ntilikina, but no matter how you feel about the young French kid, it is simply impossible to predict the type of player he will be in the NBA. He could be a Dante Exum type of guard or he could be the next international sensation to come to the league.
The kid from France has been the overwhelming pick for Dallas in mock drafts as the international scouting for the Mavs is always praised among the league. If Dallas is sitting in the 7-9 spot in the first round and all of the above point guards are gone, then Ntilikina could be their pick.
