MALIK MONK (CHA)
G • 6’3, 200 lbs; 3rd year, Kentucky
NBA ROLE: (RAW) EXPLOSIVE, SCORING COMBO GUARD
Charlotte's Malik Monk has the skill to outperform his draft position (11th overall in 2017); "double-take" scorer - athletically, Monk is high class, has no trouble getting by his matchup; hard to corral off the dribble (needs just a bounce or two before rising for Js), improving ball-handler & creator; good outside shooter, must capitalize on spot ups; not a natural creator for others (Monk can certainly get his), needs to perfect basic PnR reads, be selective from the field & look for the open man after penetrating; no slouch on D but lacks ideal strength & size - toughness isn't an issue, Monk must work on a niche (ball pressure, sequence D: steals/blocks leading to scores); future Sixth Man or much more? - can the Hornets maximize what Monk brings to the table?
