Malachi Ndur, St Thomas (ON), SF/PF, Class of 2020, Uncommitted Strengths
-Intriguing set of physical tools for a combo forward. Around 6' 7 with wide shoulders and long arms. No neck.
-Fluid athlete who can play above the rim in space. Long strides to the rim.
-Former soccer player who has only been playing basketball for about six months.
-Projectable shooting stroke. Ball comes out smoothly. Sound mechanics, especially considering his experience level.
-Can attack a closeout
-Decent feet defending the perimeter. Plays hard overall.Weaknesses
-Limited from a shot creation standpoint. Handle is a bit rigid. More of a modern four skill set than a wing right now.
-Not a threat to make shots off the dribble at this stage. Shooting potential but not quite realized yet.
-Feel for the game and playmaking ability still a work in progress. Doesn't have all that much high level experience.
-Still learning the ins and outs of team and man-to-man defense.Outlook The son of former NHL player Rumun Ndur, Malachi Ndur is late to the game but has a lot of promise from a physical and skill perspective. His frame is projectable at 6' 7 and the fact that he already sports a fairly fluid spot shooting stroke along with solid agility is a welcome sign for his long-term prospects. We weren't able to get an extended look at Ndur as he played a fairly limited role in the Futures Game but he's without a doubt a player to keep an eye on given his development curve, tools and budding skill level.
