Why Teams Should Take Him: Ricky Ledo has everything you could want in a shooting guard. He has size and athleticism to finish at the rim. If defenders give him space, he can knock down 3's at a high rate.
When he is on the court, he seems to know exactly where to find space to give himself an opportunity to succeed. While it is unlikely he plays point guard in the NBA, he has the ball-handling ability to run the offense in short doses if needed as well.
Why Teams Should Stay Away: Thanks to academic issues, Ledo did not play at all for Providence this past season. This will not only make him rusty, but it did not give teams a chance to evaluate the player at a high level.
This is also contributes to character concerns that have been dating back to high school of a player that is not truly focused on his future.
Whichever team grabs him will have to hope that the potential he shows in practice will translate into games on a consistent basis.
Best Fit: No. 27 Denver Nuggets
Due to his inexperience and overall risk, it would be surprising to see Ledo land somewhere in the lottery. After that point comes teams that are looking for immediate help, which is something the guard cannot necessarily provide.
He needs a team where he can be brought along slowly, and Denver's depth will allow that to happen. In a few years, he could be a steal for this up-and-coming squad.
