Future Watch: Emmanuel Mudiay Basketball Rookie Cards, Denver Nuggets – This year’s seventh overall pick in the NBA Draft is a work in progress. However, Muiday, at just 19, has all the raw talent necessary to make it in the league. At 6′-5″ and 200lbs, he is a quick point guard with good shooting range that can also attack the basket.
After initially committing to play for SMU of the NCAA, he changed his mind and spent one year playing professionally for a team in China, the Guangdong Southern Tigers. He spent much of the season on injured reserve. However, in the 12 games he did appear, Mudiay averaged 18.0 points, 6.3 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.6 steals per game.
Those numbers, combined with his status as both a Parade magazine and McDonald’s All-American, made him a potential steal at number seven.
