#4) Juan Ignacio Marcos, 6'2, 159, Point Guard, 16.0 years old, Argentina
Argentinean Point Guard Juan Ignacio Marcos may have been the breakout performer of the Americas Team Camp. Sharing the backcourt with Lautaro Lopez, Marcos was another skilled playmaking guard who kept defenses on their heels with his ability to score and create. Marcos is only 16 years old, and at 6'2 he projects much more as a point guard even though he can score the ball in a variety of ways. Similarly to Lopez, his frame is very much on the slight side, but at just 16 there is definitely room for growth. Marcos is a creative ball handler with a really good feel for the game, who can run the point guard position, but can also get into the paint and finish creatively. He is forced to finish creatively given his size, but he showed consistency with his floater, and can finish with his left hand as well. He's got knockdown catch and shoot ability, and is shifty enough with the ball in hands to create space off the bounce and knock in dribble jumpers. He has excellent speed in the open court, and is an unselfish player who looks to spread the ball around and make the extra pass.
Being only 16 years old, Marcos was playing up in competition, but he didn't look deterred, and played with a sense of confidence that was impressive for someone his age and size. He may have some physical limitations down the line, but he has an impressive skill set that he will continue to build on as he gets more experience playing at the international level.
