Draft Notes

Darlan is a well built shooting guard from Senegal who came up in the NBA Academy program before jumping to the G League Ignite. He missed time early in the season with an ankle injury and never fully hit his stride this year. Still he could be a second round pick based on his upside and nice physical profile.

At 6-6 with awesome length and a strong frame Darlan has clear NBA tools and athletic ability. His game is still somewhat theoretical but he shows really nice flashes.

Darlan has nice form on his jumper and can hit off the catch and off the dribble as well. He’s a creative talent on the offensive end with good handles and the ability to breakdown defenders with the dribble. He’s also a good off the ball mover and cutter and is a good play finisher.

For a team willing to be patient and spend the time and energy developing his talents he could be worth a second round pick.
