Abdoulaye N'Doye

He might just make a team really happy in the 2nd round. I don't think he will ever make it as a PG, but as a 3&D wing, he looks good to me.

The physical profile is excellent: 6'7" tall, 7'2" wingspan, big hands and he is definitely an NBA athlete. He likes to defend, and is good at it, able to match up 1-3. If he puts some more muscle/weight on, he can probably handle most 4's.

Offensively, he is shooting 41 % from 3 this year... He's got enough ball skills and passing that he's playing PG for Cholet (French Pro A), which means he has some potential as a secondary creator. His 2FG and 3FG% have gone up every year in Pro A, which says to me that he is still learning to shoot...

I'd be happy to pick him up with the Spurs 2nd round pick.

It's a good call, the issue is that even if he shoots 3s, is likely limited corner ones and not much versatility (where you really get value) and the dude has terrible offensive numbers otherwise, I like the tools (6-7.5, 7-2 wingspan, 198lbs, solid frame) and has the size to play the 3, def can defend (esp Guards), but I have my doubts with his ball skills been good enough, he plays next to another PG and his offensive numbers are really atrocious

Again, he could be what Ntilikina has been, and might have a similar ceiling (even if Frank showed a bit more promise) so I do think he is draftable late
