Dzanan Musa is a smart, skilled swingman that can score the basketball. He excels at attacking the basket to garner buckets on offense, and he also will look to find the open man to set up scores for his teammates.
However, he will be more consistent in making jump shots, and he can tend to be a ball-dominant player that may struggle if he has to play off the ball. His effort can lag on defense at times, but he can be a good defender when he is dialed in.
NBA scouts and teams will be watching Musa closely this year to get a closer gauge of his skills. But so far, he’s off to a good start this season. If he can stay motivated and continue to play well this year, he could perhaps be a potential lottery pick in 2018.
