Dikembe Dixson is an athletic swingman that is an early entry candidate for the 2018 NBA Draft. He tested well athletically at the Pro Basketball Combine, and he also excelled as a shooter, as he was one of the better performers at that event.
However, his shooting percentages have not been great over the course of his collegiate career, and he will need to work to become a better playmaker. Most likely, he will need to spend at least a season in either the G-League or overseas to hone his overall game. If he can improve his skill set significantly over time, maybe he could develop into being an Ime Udoka type of player in the NBA.
