Timothé Luwawu-Cabarrot

  • 6’7” Shooting Guard, with 7’1” wingspan
  • 21 years old; played 1 year at Mega Leks (in Adriatic League)
  • Adding strength will help finishing at the rim in half-court; only 41.9% on 2s
  • Athletic wing; likes to push the ball in transition and run up-and-down court
  • Great shooting form; has potential to be best shooter in draft class
  • 2% from International 3pt on 5.6 attempts/game
  • Only 69% FT shooter
  • Good ball skills; capable of running PNR as a secondary/tertiary ball-handler
  • Needs to improve play-making and passing abilities to get there
  • Size helps Timothe see over opponents and make better passes
  • Doesn’t shoot a lot off the dribble; tends to pass or get to hoop once ball touches court
  • Can be out of control at times; 3.8 Turnovers/40 compared to only 3.5 assists/40
  • Has the size and athleticism to guard 2’s, and 3’s, even 1’s for stretches
  • Can get low in defensive stance and keep in front of smaller defenders, while using size to easily contest shots
  • Often loses track of his man when playing off-ball defense
  • 2 Steals/40
  • Mega Leks’ free-flowing style of play tends to inflate players’ counting stats; have to hope playing in NBA system will help reel him and reach his potential

 

  • Likely won’t start right away, but can develop into starter for a contender
  • Potential to be perfect 3-and-D player with ideal size
  • Needs to prove defensive skills are translatable to earn starting PT
  • #2 Shooting Guard, #4 overall Guard in draft; should go 8-15
