Nikita Mikhailovskii is a sharpshooter that can knock down shots on offense. He played very well in the VTB United League, but he had trouble making the transition to playing in the NBL for Tasmania, and he played just 2 regular season games before departing this year. He will need to improve his playmaking and defensive skills, and he will need to add more strength to be able to handle stronger players. Currently, he is a long shot to be drafted, but he could project into a shooting specialist role if he ever makes his way to the NBA.
