Ivan Tkachenko is an athletic, high motor swingman that could project to be an energetic defensive specialist if he makes it to the NBA level. He does a good job of scoring on hustle plays as he will get buckets off of cuts and in transition, and he also is a very active help defender that can make numerous plays for his team.
He will need to improve his jump shot and show that he can consistently play well with more minutes this year, if so he could perhaps end up being a late second round pick in 2019.
