Nico Mannion Rumors
Mannion on Feb. 6 racked up 20 points (12-for-18 free throws) and seven assists against the USC Trojans. NBC Sports Bay Area’s Chris Mullin broadcasted that game, and provided the scouting report on the former McDonald’s All-American during the latest episode of the “Dubs Talk” podcast with Grant Liffmann.
“I was impressed with him. Ball-handling, toughness, driving to the basket,” the NBA Hall of Famer explained. “His shot selection (is important). He took some contested shots. He’s a much better shooter than his numbers show.”
“Tough kid, athletic … I’ve seen some clips of him in the gym. If you have talent and you work hard, you’ll get better,” Mullin added. “All indications are that’s what he’s all about. He’s a gym rat. “I think he’ll be able to play some backup minutes (this season). I really do. I think it’s a great pick.”
