I never scouted him because i can’t spell his name.

Lakers drafted him though IRL so there’s that

The Lakers drafted him because of his exceptional shooting (not much more to look at) and I guess that's the case here too? No scouting data for me.

Dude is really good in every area but REB (meh for a wing), DEF (where he's bad) and personality. This is about where I figured he'd go. In the right setup with defenders around him, he'll be a great player. Good pick for this slot.

btw, pick #19 was traded as well. Waiting to hear back on who they want. Shouldn't be too long.

Good offensive talent all around (minus offensive rebounding). Good scorer, great shooter (especially his jumpshot), good handles and good IQ. His defense isn't anything to write home about, but he'll force some turnovers.

Great offense, solid playmaking and should be able to produce turnovers at a quite nice ratio as well. Not my top choice for wings but gonna be a really solid starter and even better as a 6th man.

I like this pick for the team that is acquiring him. SM is a great perimeter scorer. Doug pretty much summed up his game perfectly. His strengths are much needed for the team acquiring him, and his weaknesses should be well-hidden.

Fantastic shooter, can turn into a good scorer with good handles as well. Won't rebound well, but will force some turnovers with his quick hands. Not a man to man defender though.

Solid shooter and aggressive scorer - could even pressure a bit. Not bad at all

Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk https://youtu.be/hMvMylhYJZ0

One of the best mid-range players in the draft. Poor man to man defender but can force turnovers. We needed someone to create offense and we got that in Svi. Svi is expected to enter the season as our starting SG.

Strengths:
+ mid range scoring
+ 3 point shooting
+ steals

Weaknesses:
- man to man defense
- not a great interior scorer
- already 22
