2024 Draft Profile - Tidjane Salaun

Kevin O'Connor - The Ringer - June 17th: "Locked-in defender who is a nuisance off the ball, digging in to help on drivers and using his long arms to poke at the ball. Hes always contesting shots at the rim, playing with his arms up in the passing lanes, and fighting through screens."

NBA Draft Room - June 16th: "Salaun is a freaky athletic and talented forward who is a high energy player, an awesome driver and an impressive 3pt shooter for his size (although the percentages need to improve). He has a chance to be special"

Jonathan Givony - ESPN - June 7th: "Salaun's measurements -- 6-10 in shoes, 217 pounds with a near 7-2 wingspan and 9-2 standing reach, indicate he has the potential to play some small-ball 5 down the road as his frame fills out, with comparable dimensions to NBA players such as Daniel Gafford or Kevon Looney at the same age."

Sam Vecenie - The Athletic - June 5th: "More importantly, Salaun simply plays hard and has terrific basketball character. He is aggressive and willing to playing physically in the paint despite a still-developing frame. His motor runs hot, and hes clearly competitive out there on the court."

Colin Ward-Henninger - CBS Sports - June 4th: "One source who's seen him play in France told me he thinks Salaun will eventually be a better finished product than countrymen Alex Sarr and Zaccharie Risacher."

Zach Buckley - Bleacher Report - June 4th: "One would be for the prospect himself, as the 18-year-old is a 6'9" shot-maker with the athleticism and motor needed to fully tap into his physical tools."

Jonathan Wasserman - Bleacher Report - May 30th: "Salaun, who made an impressive 74 threes as a 6'9" 18-year-old, continued to show NBA teams his shooting range. Though his handle and self-creation remain limited, he's still finding ways to earn easy baskets from off the ball, tapping into his size, athleticism and motor."
