He isn't a PG tho. Need a playmaker on the floor with him. If he can guard PGs he will stick


No he’s not a “PG” but he will likely guard point guards.

He’s a scorer and shooter so someone else will handle Point Guard duties on offense.


That's what I basically said. Lol


Yeah...so...where is the disagreement here?

Kind of a quick trigger on the 2-way contract, isn't it? When did the Lakers give out their first two-way contract last year?

His best skills are the transition 3 and the corner 3.

Agree. He has fairly good handles and quickness. Just needs to continue developing his dribble drive and vision/passing skills to potentially fill a combo guard role.

His game reminds me of Terry Rozier, a lot.

I like Malik. He has lots of potential.

If Ellington is his floor he will be a darn good ball player. He will never be a Ray Allen but that's okay.

Reading these tweets about the guy is encouraging. A lot of random BBall fans seem to think we got a steal.

He was the 8th ranked HS recruit in 2015. He was ranked 1 and 2 by some sites. Go to draft Express and read some of the 2014 and 2015 stuff.

Was a shot-maker in college, someone who can drive the ball from the perimeter and finish. Fills a need on this club.

I can see why they gave him the 2-way contract. Caruso is likely gone

Bryant + Newman will get the 2 way contracts. They are both great in transition
