Tom Digbeu is a very athletic combo guard that could project to be a solid, second round draft and stash pick in the future.  He has played in Lithuania’s top league, the LKL and in Australia’s top league, the NBL. This year, he played briefly for the Motor City Cruise in the NBA G-League, and after being unceremoniously waived after a one-game stint, Tom Digbeu has played very well in France’s second division, the LNB Pro B League for Alliance Sport Alsace, which has rebuilt his draft stock this year.

He is an athletic slasher that also can defend multiple positions.  He is also the son of former Atlanta Hawks’ 1997 2nd round pick, Alain Digbeu. On the other hand, Tom Digbeu will need to significantly improve his jump shot, and he may need to show teams that he can effectively run the point, but his scoring and defensive potential combined with his athletic gifts have helped him gain some draft buzz, and Digbeu could be a worthwhile prospect to select in the second round range of the 2023 draft.

Side note:
Tom Digbeu was born in Spain, but he has dual citizenship with Spain and France.  Digbeu represented France during the 2017 Jordan Brand Classic, but his old DraftExpress write-up said that he played in Spain in his U16 games.  ESPN and DraftExpress both list his country as Spain, and NBADraft.Net lists his country as France.  On our website, for now his country will be listed as Spain/France, as it is said from Eurospects that he is on the fence on which country he would represent in international competitions.
