Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk, Kansas

The man nicknamed “Svi” in Lawrence, Kansas consistently improved over his four years under Bill Self and it culminated with him being a key player on this year’s team that made it all the way to the Final Four before falling to the eventual National Champion, Villanova.

The Ukrainian is known for his quick, smooth shot that resulted in him shooting just under 45 percent on over 250 three-point attempts this season.

Mykhailiuk averaged a career high 35 minutes per game and became more than just the sharpshooter he was known as in his first three season. He played a lot of minutes at the four, consistently having to guard bigger players and he managed to hold his own.

He’s got good size at 6-foot-8 and will be able to get his shot off easily against opposing wings thanks to his rapid release.

Most draft experts have Mykaihliuk be selected in the last five picks of the draft, if they have him being picked at all. With the Sixers having picks at 56 and 60, there’s no reason the team shouldn’t give Mykaihliuk a chance to show what he can do at summer league and prove that he is capable of being an NBA player.

Finally, we’ll take a look at another guard who played in the state of Kansas.
