Summary:

Samson Ruzhentsev is a speedy, skilled swingman that can shoot and score the basketball.  He played sparingly last season as a freshman at Florida before electing to play overseas this year.  He is shooting the ball much better in limited minutes in the Adriatic League with Mega Mozzart.  He will need to show NBA teams that he can knock down shots and defend well on a consistent basis.  Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2022 draft.
