Summary:

Lucas Dias Silva is a versatile offensive player that can do many things on that end of the floor.  He can score in a variety of ways, and he is also a fairly good passer and ball handler.​

But he will likely need to improve his rebounding and defense, as he must pick up the focus in those elements of the game.  Right now, he projects to be a second round pick for the NBA as teams will look at him as a good draft and stash candidate for them in the future.
