2016 adidas Eurocamp: Day Three

Jun 12, 2016, 02:58 pm
-David Michineau wrapped up a solid showing at the adidas EuroCamp with a strong outing in the final game of the weekend. He measured a solid 6'2 1/2 without shoes in Treviso, giving him excellent size for a point guard to go along with a strong 192 pound frame, even if his fairly short 6'5 wingspan may relegate him to defending mostly point guards at the highest levels.

Michineau's athleticism stood out from the first morning of drills, as his ability to change speeds and get to another gear in the open court put him on a different level than most of the guards in attendance. When fully dialed in, he's also an outstanding defender, capable of moving his feet exceptionally well and staying in front of almost anyone he encouters. Unfortunately he has somewhat of a laid back attitude that relegated him to the background at times here in Treviso, after coming out of the gates with a very high intensity level.

Michineau's jumper is clearly a work in progress judging by his unwillingness to take too many outside shots here in Treviso, and his career 28% accuracy from beyond the arc, but he did show some surprising potential in the morning drills. He knocked down a very high percentage of his catch and shoot jumpers from beyond the NBA line, demonstrating good form in the process, as it's been clear he's been working on this part of his game in his free time. This still hasn't quite translated to game settings yet, but it may be something he can continue to work on as his career progresses.

Michineau will likely garner some interest from teams picking in the late second round, particularly those with multiple draft picks looking to stash a player in Europe in the near future. Even if he doesn't get drafted, he's the type of player a team could elect to look more closely at in summer league.

David Michineau is another player, who, despite his age, could help his draft stock quite a bit of good with a strong showing here. A bit of a late bloomer who never played for any of the French junior national teams, the ultra-quick 6'3 point guard has developed into a promising role-player thanks to his lock-down defensive prowess and ability to get to spots on the floor off the bounce. He isn't the most natural floor general and has a lot of room to improve as a shooter, but will have a chance to really showcase his development over the last few years here, something he wasn't ready to do when he made his way to Treviso in 2014. Versatile defensive guards with size have real value in today's NBA, and if Michineau can show some potential with his outside shot and decision making skills, he could emerge as a viable draft and stash candidate in the second round.

-Nice size for a point guard
-Solid frame
-Very fast in transition
-Gets to the basket with a quick first step
-Puts solid pressure on the ball defensively

-Wild in the half-court
-Doesn't know how to control the tempo of the game
-Needs to develop playmaking instincts
-Very turnover prone at times
-Average perimeter shooter

A native of Guadeloupe, Michineau has many of the basic attributes scouts like to see in a developing point guard, particularly from a physical standpoint. It will be interesting to see how he improves his shooting and playmaking skills over the next few years.
