Malcolm Brogdon, Buddy Hield, Tyler Ulis, and Denzel Valentine are your four finalists for the Naismith Award. It, along with the Wooden Award, are essentially your college basketball Heisman trophy. Brogdon, Virginia‘s 6-5 senior two guard, and ACC Player of the Year (the first since Ralph Sampson in 1984), is both a shooter and a scorer, and you’ll see his name in the early second round of many a NBA mock draft. He can bring it on the other end of the court too; having won ACC Defender of the Year this season.
Brogdon has got a lot of size for a two guard at the college level, but he’s not really big for a NBA two, it will be interesting to see how he can find a way to compensate for his lack of size in order to try and fit in at the next level. He also finished his college basketball career in the worst way possible.Follow paulmbanks
