Sidy Cissoko: Mismatch Ballhandling

The Silver and Black secured another potential international steal when Sidy Cissoko fell into their lap with the 44th overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft. He has remarkable feel for the game, compelling ball skills, and several seasons of professional expereince under his belt. After a stellar go-round with the G League Ignite, it makes you wonder how so many teams passed on the 18-year-old forward.

Throw on his game tape, and it is easy to understand why Cissoko garnered some first-round chatter during this draft cycle. We already examined the mismatch nightmares the Frenchman could pose as a jumbo playmaker last week, and Spurs fans should tune into the California Classic to see if all those enticing abilities materialize when he suits up for his first unofficial minutes for San Antonio.
