Brooklyn Nets 2017 NBA Draft Guide – 8 Deep Draft Guards

The Brazilian is quite possibly the most interesting prospect of the bunch. De Paula has fantastic measurements for a guy that primarily played point in the Brazilian league, with ideal height, length and huge hands. (Something, something Donald Trump…hands…etc.) Georginho was a solid playmaker, thriving in transition. He displays nice vision in the pick and roll, able to find shooters on the move. However, his turnovers were an issue, mostly due to a poor lack of feel when attacking off the dribble. He displays nice potential as a ballhandler, but most of his offensive game, outside of playmaking is a work in progress. Defensively, De Paula is a bit tentative, avoiding contact despite often having a strength and size advantage over his opponents.
