2. Olivier-Maxence Prosper

Olivier-Maxence Prosper became a fan favorite almost instantly in Dallas, as he and Dereck Lively II were seen warmly approaching each other on draft night.

Prosper showed an excellent two-way ability at Summer League, as he proved that he can be much more than a 3-and-D wing. He effectively attacks closeouts, scores well in transition, and moves well off the ball. Prosper brings it all as a wing and has great potential.

Dallas Mavericks head coach Jason Kidd has already said that Prosper is likely going to be in the starting lineup for training camp and early preseason, and he could turn into an everyday starter on the wing.

This training camp and preseason will be massive for Prosper, as his fit next to Luka Doncic, Kyrie Irving, and Grant Williams could determine if he is the opening night starter. He will likely be fighting with Josh Green for the starting wing spot, as it sounds like Kidd wants Tim Hardaway Jr. to come off the bench.

If Prosper can knock down open shots, defend at a high level, and fit in well with Dallas' star duo, Prosper could be in the starting lineup once October 25 rolls around.

If not, he could be coming off the bench.
