Some NBA executives believe Malik Monk needs to make the switch to point guard. The execs cite his smaller size at 6'3" and lack of length with a below-average wingspan for an NBA player. Monk sure can fill it up and is known for his 47-point explosion against North Carolina, averaging 19.8 points per game in his freshman season. He didn't really run the offense much at Kentucky with only 2.3 assists per game, so it won't be an easy switch.

Malik Monk has declared for the 2017 NBA draft. "What I love about Malik is that, as the season went on, he learned how to help our team win by doing more than just score," said John Calipari. "He became an efficient player who I believe will make an immediate impact at the next level." Monk was Kentucky's top scorer during his one-and-done season there, putting in averages of 19.8 points, 2.7 triples, 2.3 dimes and 2.0 turnovers per contest on 49.7 percent shooting, and he's currently projected to go within the top-5 on draft day.
