Rarely forces the issue, good shot selection and patience
Good shot blocker
Physicality; needs to get stronger
Not the most explosive 6-9 player
Too often has a guard's mentality settling for jump shots
Handling double teams (though he likely won't see any in the NBA)
Summary: Nicholson was an under-the-radar prospect most of his career until leading the Bonnies to the Atlantic-10 Tournament title and spot in the NCAA Tournament. Due to his inside/outside ability, Nicholson should likely be a late first-round pick. I don't think he will ever be a starter in the league but could be a valuable reserve and thrive in pick and pop situations.
Player Comparison: Charlie Villanueva. Villanueva has always been more of a perimeter-based power forward who can use his length and versatility inside as well. Nicholson is in that same mold. He has a nice stroke from the outside and can take defenders down low with his back to the basket game. The former A-10 Player of the Year does tend to float out on the perimeter too much just like Villanueva.
Based on my mock draft which is accurate there isnt gonna be many options besides guards unless you reach a little. Still a month to go so some things could change. Lauri Markannen would be my 2nd choice. But still Rubio is NOT the furture PG for Twolves. Hes trade bait. And Tyus Jones is nothing more than a back up PG. IF THAT. So if they want to IMPROVE they would grab the 19 yr old PG with ton of potential who was once considered best PG in class. Smith-Lavine-Wiggins-Dieng-Towns.
