Pick 53 — Nando De Colo

Team: Cholet
Position: PG/SG
Height: 6’5″
Weight: 187

De Colo is our second point guard from France, and the first one seems to be doing ok so far. Standing at 6’5″, it’s apparent why he plays both guard spots. That versatility is valuable if you’re trying to make the team, and project to be 3rd on the PG depth chart.

Capable of highlight reel passes, he can be a nice fit on our Spurs, who a well known for their boring style of play, which thus far has translated into 4 championships. Able to hit a spot up jumper, and sporting a variety of effective hesitation moves, we don’t know how well he’ll play defense on the NBA level.

Depending on what San Antonio does with their roster the rest of the offseason, De Colo could make the roster this year.
