Georges Niang (IND) – “TBD

(Trevor Ruszkowski/USA TODAY Sports)


IND Forward: 6’8, 230 lbs; 2nd year, Iowa State

 NBA Role: (raw) point forward • UnderDOG

A consensus second-team All-American his senior season at Iowa State, IND’s Georges Niang brings his ‘old man game’ to the Association; a second-round pick (51st overall), scouts doubted Niang’s ability to contribute at an elite level since he lacks upper-echelon athleticism and doesn’t have a defined position – can he prove critics wrong (again)?; Boris Diaw-esque playmaker & scorer – loves finding teammates (sometimes it’ll look pretty, sometimes it won’t) – Niang is patient (or just slow?), takes his time before deciding his next move; more of a pure basketball player than one-dimensional talent, Coach Nate McMillan could use Niang as his ‘ace in the hole’ as the season rolls along
