CURRENT TEAM: Strasbourg IG Birthday: 28.07.1998
Height:  195m / 6'5'' Weight: 77kg/170lbs

Strengths: 

Good  size for PG position and what is most important keeps growing. Has huge wingspan and easily can play above the rim but doesn't do it so often. . Not overly fast but can play at different speeds due good change of pace. Need to put some weight. Capable pulling up from deep and playing off the ball. Pure point guard. Has great feel for P/R game. Can find multiple passing  solutions in P&R game as well he can create his own shot. Ntilikina is smart defensive player that understand game very well. Shows pride in defense and has potential for becoming pesky defender. Fights over the screens, recovers from weak side. Use his long reach to force turnovers. Quick enough to recover even when he goes under the screens.

Weaknesses: 

Not overly fast but can play at different speeds due good change of pace. Need to put some weight. Due long arms his shooting can be slow and bit inconsistent. Still need to improve his shooting since last season had only 28% from behind the arc. Need to get stronger since he has trouble finishing around the rim. Relays on floater shots to much but doesn't have much success in it.

 

 

Miscellaneous:

Outgoing person, true floor general. Plays  very unselfish and great teammate.  Born in Belgium and parents are from Rwandan. Arguably the most talented long-term prospect at the entire event.  Has a great feel for the game and good physical tools together with good court vision.

Overall Rating:

One of the most talented PGs if not most talented one. For sure has good NBA future in front of him.
