Georgios Kalaitzakis is a skilled, versatile combo guard that excels at attacking the basket to score the basketball. He is an athletic slasher that can frequently take the ball to the rim to get scores and free throws, and he also can score off-ball motion plays. He also can ably run the point if needed to do so, and his versatility can allow him to play multiple positions.
However, he can quite streaky with his jump shot, and he can at times commit too many turnovers. If he can continue to hone his craft, he could end up being an effective role player in the NBA, as he could potentially end up going late in the second round as a stash pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.
