NBA Draft

Scouting Report

At age 18, he's one of the youngest players available for the 2019 draft. He has played for Avtodor Saratov in Russia.
He's a polished shooter, making 44 percent of his 3-point shots for his Russia team. He has gained the reputation as a nifty passer and so his play-making abilities might be underappreciated to some degree.
Mikhailovskii has played in some international events as a youth player and he has shown that he can match up against that caliber of competition.
At 6-foot-8 and growing, there is plenty to like about Mikhailovskii's game, but he could have a difficult time handling the ball with any sort of pressure defense against more physically developed competition. Early in his career, his role will be integral to building his confidence.
It's the other end of the court where he's expected to make his money as a pro -- shooting and the idea that he's far from a finished product that make him such an interesting topic for some pro teams.
He's not going to awe observers with raw physical stature, but he's a savvy prospect who already grasps the know-your-role aspects of the game.
Seeing how he might handle various situations on the defensive end is something teams will have to figure out if they're going to have him on the court.
It's difficult to find a scenario where Mikhailovskii is ready anytime soon to be on NBA court, but he could be a payoff project and with a chance for a team with some flexibility.
