NBA Draft

Sandro Mamukelashvili

Scouting Report

He averaged 17.5 points per game in his final college season, up significantly from 11.9 in the 2019-20 season.
His shooting touch is notable, though his 3-point percentage dripped to 33.6 during the past season after hitting at a 43.6 clip the year before. Still, Mamukelashvili is a player who can stretches defenses because of his range.
He's from the country of Georgia. He's 22 years old and he has an array of basketball experiences, so that could be a plus for him.
He's going to get more attention because of offensive skills compared to the size element. He's not going to wow many with athleticism, so matching up defensively could be a challenge for him. On the flip side, he can provide trouble for defenders his size because of his ability to handle the ball.
While he's not going to be an intimidating force despite his size, he's crafty enough in the lane to make use of his size. He averaged six or more rebounds in each of his last three seasons in college, pulling in more than 7.5 per outing in two of his seasons.
Positives: He uses his height well to see the floor and that helps his anticipation on the offensive end, where he'll need to be productive in order to be a factor as a professional. If he develops consistency as a shooter from deep, his value is bound to go up.
Negatives: It often comes back to his general athleticism, which isn't up to par compared to NBA-level competitors he would be assigned to tangle with. If he can't excel at a high level in a certain area or two, there might be too many deficiencies to land a meaningful role.
