Malik Newman

Position: SG                        College: Kansas                 Class/YOB: Sophomore

Height: 6’3                          Weight: 189                       Wingspan: 6’6

 

Strengths:

  • Long-range sniper. Can hit from well behind the NBA line.
  • Quick off the dribble. Capable of dancing a little bit with the ball. Shifty ball-handler.
  • Plus rebounder for his size.
  • Can defend. Had the top defensive assignments at Kansas late in the year. Ability to dodge screens will bode well for guarding a lot of pick-and-rolls.

Weaknesses:

  • Limited with his height.
  • Found his groove at Kansas playing off the ball. But will he be able to play point if asked?
  • Not strong enough or athletic enough to make up for lack of height. Margin for error defensively will be low.
