An update on Musa’s performance in Europe recently:
- On March 27 against KK Jazine, 33 points and 7 assists on 12-20 shooting plus three makes from deep. Musa played 40 minutes.
- On April 1 against Buducnost, a down performance, with just four points on 2-8 shooting, no 3s and just one assist.
- On April 4, as shown in the highlight video above, 36 points to go with 10 assists and eight rebounds, including five 3s, in 33 minutes played.
After an inconsistent February, Musa has especially shown up in the assist column lately, taking his offensive game to the next level just in time for all of us to start looking at him more closely as we near the combine in May. How does Musa stack up compared with domestic talents?
His shooting and ability to attack closeouts will translate well. His strong, quick release allows him to nail NBA-distance 3s regularly. If he adds weight, perhaps his length and quickness become defensive strengths. But you know you’re getting a floor-spacer if you take Musa, plus the upside is promising.
Imagine him at the four next to Zach Collins in Portland, and come join me in Musa Manor.
