Ntilikina is a versatile, defense-first guard with elite size and length, a high basketball IQ, a professional approach and improving scoring ability. He should be able to defend one through three in time, thanks to his quick feet, long strides, 7-foot wingspan and competitiveness. He an play out of a ball screen, make spot threes with time and space, and make plays off closeouts. Ntilikina doesn't have a lot of holes in his game, although he's not quite elite at anything. He was asked to defer on a championship-contending squad, and it remains to be seen how Ntilikina, who is more smooth than explosive, will be able to score at the NBA level.
