NBA Draft 2022: Brazilian Warriors named Gui Santos with number 55 in the selection

NBA Draft 2022: Brazilian Warriors named Gui Santos with number 55 in the selection

With their final selection for the 2022 NBA edition, the Warriors picked Brazilian forward Gui Santos at No. 55.

The 20-year-old was probably hidden by the warriors outside.

Listed at 6-foot-8, 210 pounds per ESPN, Santos played four seasons for Minas at Novo Basketball Brazil (NBB).

During the 2021-22 seasonSantos averaged 10.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 25.7 in Minas’ 37 games.

Here’s what ESPN’s NBA Project Analyst Jonathan Givoni wrote about Santos:

“A long-armed, strong-framed winger who has made huge improvements in the past two seasons in Brazil, Santos has a great combination of flexibility, aerodynamics and fitness in attacking the edge, while constantly competing both defensively and on the glass. Santos is not yet consistent enough as a shooter and is still developing into a leading goalscorer. More comprehensive. He has handled the ball more this season and has shown great strides with his passing ability.”

While Santos is a pull-and-hide player, the Warriors have picked two players who might be able to help them next season with first-round picks Patrick Baldwin Jr. (#28) and second-round player Ryan Rollins (#44).
