Yet another 6-9 small forward. Not as skilled as the others, Maxim Sheleketo
is as athletic as Korolev and Claver, and perhaps the most explosive of them right now. Still playing combo forward, he seems headed right to the small forward position, as he has the athleticism and ability to defend the opponent's small forwards, and some developing perimeter skills.
His main offensive weapon is his jumper, which he frequently takes from three-point range. He usually makes it from a stand still, and while you may see him in an off-the-dribble mode, it's generally after a simple and easy movement; as he rarely forces the situation. He's also a great finisher in transition or in half-court offense, cutting by the baseline. He loves to dunk the ball whenever he has the chance. His ball handling isn't much more than average, but he can penetrate with a nice first step, although he doesn't try too much.
As you may have realized by now, he's much more of a finisher than a game creator. And while he doesn't look like a big-time prospect right now, he has enough interesting characteristics to take him into account.
