Former Michigan Wolverines standout Ignas Brazdeikis has been turning heads at the NBA Combine.
First, Iggy’s speed.
I do have my worries about Grant's D on the perimeter, his technique is inconsistent and his feet aren't the best. Iggy Brazdeikis easily blows by him here on the handoff pic.twitter.com/8WdHsrLIsF— Ben Pfeifer (@Ben_Pfeifer_) May 17, 2019
Passing prowess on display.
I like this play by Brazdeikis, looks to take Dotson down low and when the help comes he kicks out to an open shooter. subtle play but a flash of good instincts nonetheless. pic.twitter.com/IZCIFN7OZB— Ben Pfeifer (@Ben_Pfeifer_) May 17, 2019
But this is the best highlight, a SportsCenter Top-Ten type of slam dunk.
Ok Iggy Brazdeikis, spin move to get free and the dunk in traffic pic.twitter.com/7r3lY3JhgA— Ben Pfeifer (@Ben_Pfeifer_) May 17, 2019
Iggy makes a nice spin move, then quickly accelerates before going vertical for a ferocious slam. Brazdeikis clearly has hops and strength to go with his game and he should do just fine in the NBA and have himself a steady career.
“I think I was able to show a little bit of my maturity out there,” Brazdeikis said at the combine. “I definitely showed how I can score the ball, but I think I rebounded the ball well, I defended pretty hard. So I think I just showed that I can be out there and play among the best.”
