Pelle Larsson, 6’6 SG/SF, Arizona

If you built a mindset and skill set in a lab, you would likely come out with Pelle Larsson. The guard forward out of Arizona is a fantastic shooter, to the tune of almost 43 percent from three, a good passer for a wing, reliable defender, and is extremely smart moving without the ball. He’s reportedly a top tier teammate who is both extremely tough and coachable. He has a great pump-fake, and can attack a closeout with the best of them. Pelle would step in and make any team better from day one.

The reason Pelle is not slated to go in this year’s lottery is really due to his age. Like Reeves, he is currently 23 already. Larsson is listed at 6-foot-6, which means he’s likely shorter than that. Even with being a flamethrower from deep, he only averaged 9.6 points over his collegiate career, meaning he might have a hard time hunting for his shot at the next level. If he were standing at 6’7/6’8, Pelle would likely be in top 10 consideration.
