NBA Mock Draft Pick #11 - Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Guard, Virginia Tech

SB Nation’s Minnesota Timberwolves blog Canis Hoopus explains the pick:

We thought Nickeil Alexander-Walker was the best player available at this spot. We like his ability on both sides of the ball, and think he can develop into a quality shooter as well as a secondary and perhaps at times primary ball-handler and playmaker on offense. We especially like his defensive potential given our struggles on that end of the floor. We are confident that he will be able to guard either back court spot, and he has shown excellent anticipation and aggressiveness on that end of the floor. Overall, we are impressed with the breadth of his skills, and think he’s a very intelligent player who will be able to translate many of those abilities to the NBA level.
