Ludde Hakanson is a smart, skilled point guard that plays in some of the toughest professional leagues from around the world. He is a good shooter that passes the ball well, and he is a care taker that can manage the game effectively.
However, he does not draw many free throws, and he may not look to score often when he gets into the paint. His lack of elite physical tools may also limit his defensive potential, as this could make it difficult for him to guard upper echelon players.
Right now, Hakanson may project to be a second round prospect for the 2018 draft. He is a sound offensive player that is an effective game manager, but his lack of elite athletic gifts may limit his upside. In a favorable scenario, he could potentially end up being a solid role player in the NBA.
