Denver Nuggets rookie Emmanuel Mudiay has a long way to go before he proves himself to everyone in NBA circles, but some scouts are already convinced that certain aspects of his game are at an elite level.

Despite not playing college basketball, Mudiay's vision and feel for the game are part of what makes him such an intriguing prospect.

An anonymous scout elaborated on what makes the rookie point guard so special for Sports Illustrated:

“Emmanuel Mudiay has the best vision of a point guard coming out of the draft in the last few years. He has a lot of passing tools others don’t have. The big deal for him will be to play without trying to prove he can shoot. His shot isn’t broken, but right now it’s his biggest weakness.”
