Summary:

Yordan Minchev is an athletic swingman that may project to be a defensive specialist at the next level.  He is a tall playmaker that plays like a point forward, and he has the ability to guard multiple positions.

Also, he was reasonably productive in the Adriatic League during the 2017-18 season, as he had averaged roughly 9 points and 5 rebounds per game.  He will need to improve his jump shot, but if he can, he could be a second round pick in 2020.
