PLAYER SUMMARY: Isaia Cordinier is another international player who is entering the 2016 NBA Draft. He is currently playing in France.
Cordinier is a 6’5″, 180 pound shooting guard who is getting good experience playing against grown men in a professional league in France. He shows nice athletic ability and plays above the rim. He sports a 6’8″ wingspan. As is the case with international players, our evaluation is based mostly off game film.
The 19-year old shows the ability to knock down the NBA 3-point shot. We liked his potential as a slasher as he can get to the basket and finish. His passing ability is above-average at this stage in his development. Cordinier has the potential when he fills out his frame to become a very solid individual defender.
Cordinier needs to get on a weight training program as he currently lacks strength and can be pushed around by bigger players. While he can hit the NBA 3-pointer, his shooting as a whole needs improvement. His ball-handling is a work in progress, which hurts his overall offensive game.
Isaia Cordinier is a really young player who will be drafted based on his potential. However, we don’t think he can compete in the NBA next season. In our opinion, his best chance for future NBA success would be to get drafted in the second round and stay overseas for another 1-2 years so he can continue to work on his game and add strength. He is still very young and has the potential in a few years to become an NBA rotational player.
