Sandro Mamukelashvili - NBA Draft Room

Sandro Mamukelashvili


(Tbilisi, Geogia)
HT: 6-11WT: 240

Draft Notes

A skilled senior center who is developing into an offensive talent with shooting range, ball handling ability and good passing skills. Sandro is moving up draft boards into second round territory and projects as a bench big at the next level.

He’s got the requisite size and enough athleticism for the next level, although he’s not a great above the rim player or rim protector. His rebounding and overall defense will have to improve but his offensive talents will get him a look from NBA teams.

Sandro is a capable outside shooter with pick and pop ability. He’s also a good decision maker with the ball and can find open shooters off the short roll and knows how to keep the ball flowing.

Sandro can handle in the open court and takes some pressure off his guard with his dribbling ability. He can also take his man off the dribble, using his advanced ball handling, decent first step and good size to slash into the lane. Combined with his outside shooting ability his driving game makes him a tough cover.

A lefty shooter who can handle and finish with both hands.
