Considered the best project of this edition of the Draft, Dante Cunningham has been chosen in the first position. The point guard and leader of the Oklahoma State Cowboys will help Detroit start building a competitive team. Get to the best possible scenario: a franchise without any reference in which you will have total freedom to apply your style of play.
His season in the university league has been to frame: 20.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.5 assists. From his stats, we can see that he’s more of a scoring point guard than an assistant. He has a very good outside shot and penetrates with great security if the opportunity arises. But nevertheless, its main attraction is the height. In today’s NBA, taller than average guards with great wingspan are highly valued.
