George De Paula NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-5 - Point Guard - Brazil

Big, strong lead guard who excels at getting into the lane.

Pros
Has unique size and strength for the PG position and uses his body well to shield defenders and protect the dribble. Sees the floor well and has pure PG instincts.

Has long arms, broad shoulders and nice hops. Can rise up and dunk with ease and has the power to hold his own in the lane.

Does a nice job of changing speeds to get the defender off balance. Has a variety of spin moves and crossovers and a knack for getting to the rim.

Has a high ceiling as a defender thanks to his size, length, strength and quickness.

Cons
Not a great shooter at this point and needs to put in a lot of work to round out this part of his game.

Needs to improve his off (right) hand.

Comparisons
Poor man's Emmanuel Mudiay.

Projection: late first or second round pick in the 2016 or 2017 NBA Draft
