Classification: Freshman
Birthdate: 5/12/2003

2022 Top 100 Prospect Rank: 17
Projected Draft Range: Mid 1st Round

Pros:

Solid shooter
Solid scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Adequate playmaker
Decent rebounder for his size
Solid athlete

Cons:

Reluctant to take threes
Lacks an elite first step off the dribble
Not an elite ball handler, can be turnover prone
Unselfish to a fault
Needs to improve his defense

Summary:

Malaki Branham is an athletic, skilled swingman that can shoot and score the basketball.  He will need to trust his three-point shot more and take them far more in games, and he will need to improve his defense, but he is a talented prospect that currently projects to go in the mid first round in the 2022 draft.
