Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-7 - Shooting Guard - Kansas (Ukraine)

Young Euro prospect with great length and a high skill level.

Pros
Mykhailiuk is an advanced offensive player; deadly from three point land and with a good feel for getting his shot. Is crafty with the ball and has excellent court vision and decision making.

Has exceptional height and length for a shooting guard, allowing him to see and pass over the defense and get his shot off against smaller defenders. Has good athleticism and, combined with his height, allows him to play above the rim.

Is very well built with broad shoulders and long arms. Should grow into a more powerful player over the years.

Cons
Still young with a lot to learn. Needs to fill out his body and add strength.

Is not the fastest player and could struggle against the quickness in the Big 12 and the NBA.

It will be interesting to monitor his adjustment to the American game and see how his skills translate.

Projection: possible second round pick in the 2017 or 2018 NBA Draft
