At #5 the Dallas Mavericks Select: TRAE YOUNG (To Be Traded)

TRAE YOUNG, 6-2, 172 LBS, POINT GUARD, OKLAHOMA'S TRAE YOUNG MADE HIS FIRST AND ONLY COLLEGE SEASON COUNT, BECOMING THE FIRST PLAYER TO EVER LEAD THE NATION IN SCORING AND ASSISTS IN THE SAME SEASON AT 27.4 POINTS A GAME AND 8.7 ASSISTS PER GAME. THE 811 POINTS HE SCORED DURING BIG 12 COMPETITION WERE MORE THAN KEVIN DURANT, AND MICHAEL BEASLEY SCORED DURING THEIR FRESHMAN SEASONS. IN DECEMBER, YOUNG TIED AN NCAA SINGLE GAME RECORD WHEN HE RACKED UP 22 ASSISTS IN A VICTORY OVER NORTHWESTERN STATE. WHILE HE'S BEEN CALLED THE BEST SHOOTER TO COME OUT OF COLLEGE SINCE STEPH CURRY HE'S NOT PERFECT. HE ALSO LED THE NCAA IN TURNOVERS, THOUGH THAT COULD BE PARTLY ATTRIBUTED TO HIS HIGH USAGE RATE, AND AT JUST 6-2 HIS LACK OF LENGTH IS GOING TO MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO FINISH AT THE RIM AGAINST NBA DEFENDERS.
