The Toronto Raptors will begin their pre-season schedule against the Hornets this Saturday in Charlotte, and on the eve of this meeting, the name of rookie Malachi Flynn is fueling the discussions.
“He was very, very good,” said head coach Nick Nurse, quoted by the Toronto sun, about Flynn’s outfit during training camp in Florida. He has a good head and really knows how to play. He understands a lot of things and he seems not to be afraid of anything. “
Flynn, 22, was selected in the first round (29e overall) by the Raptors in the recent draft. The San Diego State University Aztecs product should logically make its debut with the Toronto roster against the Hornets.
