Malik Monk Scouting Report

(First posted at RealGM)

As I profiled in December, Monk is essentially the smaller version of Markkanen.

His shot making is remarkable, as he nailed 40.7% of his three-point shots while averaging 8.7 such attempts per 40 minutes.

The six-foot-three gunner is undersized for a pure wing, though, projecting to lack strength and length to matchup against position peers in the pros, aside from not being the most interested defender to begin with.

A transition to the point might be in his future but considering he wasn’t given much shot creation responsibility this season, it’s unclear how that would play out.
