Marcos Louzada Silva is an efficient, score-first combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball. He has played well in Brazil’s top professional league, the NBB, this year, and he has been receiving some draft buzz as a result. Silva is a skilled player that could project into a 3 and D type of role in the NBA, and he could potentially be a second round pick in the 2019 draft.
