PHI Shooting Guard/Small Forward: 6’6, 205 lbs; 2nd year, France

NBA Role: (raw) athletic swingman • UnderDOG

“A higher upside Thabo Sefolosha (ATL).” 

“A carbon copy of 2013-2015 Iman Shumpert (CLE).” 

…whichever way you lean towards, it’s clear Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot is an athletic swingman who specializes in disrupting offensive flow and turning defense into points*; TLC’s upside is higher than his (above) comparisons, since he possesses more length and projects as a better shooter from deep; w/ the rock, TLC’s quick ‘blow-bys’ are there – needs to learn how to incorporate more action off the bounce, w/ a live dribble; defensive sliding and rebounding has shown promise; NBA-level athlete but needs to slow the game down a bit; projects as an outstanding source of steals and block at his defensive peak; confident shooter – doesn’t hesitate, likes rising from the corner; will TLC competes for a starting spot in 2017-18?

*well, that’s the hope! (in a couple yrs.)
