Relative unknown commodity
Michalis Lountzis is an athletic, combo guard that was an early-entry candidate for the 2017 NBA Draft before later withdrawing. He has not seen much playing time at the highest levels of professional basketball, and he can be entirely too passive on offense at times. But he also may have good athletic gifts as well as a versatile skill set in which if he stays in this draft, he may be a draft and stash candidate that could end up being selected late in the second round in 2020.
