Summary:

Malcolm Cazalon is a swingman that has been receiving considerable draft buzz for the 2020 draft, as some have him as a potential first round pick for that year.   However, he has not played much in professional basketball, and he did not play well in France’s top league last year. He did not play much last year, but he really struggled with his jump shot in the 2017-18 season. There’s been plenty of hype on Cazalon, but he will need to show that he can play well in professional basketball to show that he may have what it takes to make it to the NBA.
