Deni Avdija will be wild card in the 2020 NBA Draft. He is currently playing in Israel, and there’s a ton to love about his game. NBA Draft Room compares the young international prospect to Mike Miller or Danny Granger.
Playing for Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv, Avdija is averaging 4.0 points and 1.2 assists per game. While those aren’t outstanding, Avdija’s youth and skill set have sky-rocketed him very high among scouts. He also played and excelled with the organization’s U-18 team.
There isn’t much that Avdija can’t do as he’s noted as an extremely aggressive player in transition and a stellar passer. With improvement to improve, Avdija doesn’t have the Luka Doncic-like success as he’ll enter the league, his upside is clear.
He may not be at the top of the Warriors big board, but if he’s still there and they don’t win the lottery, he’ll certainly hear his name mentioned in their discussions.
