Relative unknown commodity


Rinalds Malmanis is a skilled, combo forward that can shoot and pass the basketball.  His team made the Euroleague playoffs, and he is one of the few draft eligible prospects that could end up getting rotation minutes for his team in the postseason.

On the other hand, he may not shoot the ball enough, and he may not stand out in the other facets of the game.  He does not have much draft stock right now, so he may be a long shot to be drafted.  If he ends up being undrafted this year, he could thrive as a solid role player overseas.
