Although Nick Calathes is not as athletic as some of the higher draft choices, he is a fundamentally sound basketball player. He is a great point guard, with the ability to score, pass, and even rebound very well.
In his one and only year in Florida, he averaged about 17 points, 6.5 assists, and 5.5 assists per game. He is also a decent defender, who averaged about 2 steals per game.
It is unfortunate that he was drafted by the Timberwolves, who also drafted three other point guards, but he will most likely get some playing time as Minnesota tries everything they can to try to improve their team from past years.
It also helps that they traded one of the point guards away, and another one will most likely be spending a couple more years in Spain, leaving him with only one more rookie guard to share playing time with.
