Juan Vaulet - 39th pick, 2015
Still in Argentina, yet it is probably time he joined Obradoiro or someone in the ACB and really sought to prove himself. Undersized if energetic rebounder yet to separate himself from the Patricio Garino types of this world, but being still only 22, he has time if he starts making quick progress.

Juan Vaulet - 39th pick, 2015
Still young, and still underdeveloped with his ball skills and shot making from all areas. Still a nuisance with a high motor. Would be a very good idea to get him to Long Island. The extended ankle problems, however, are a concern.

Despite having very little in the way of picks, the Nets gave up two future second round picks to Charlotte for the rights to Vaulet, drafted 39th. Had Vaulet fallen two more spots, they might have picked him at #41 instead of Pat Connaughton, kept the two seconds, kept Miles Plumlee and not traded for Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. But regardless, Vaulet's here now.

Playing last year for Bahia in his native Argentina, the 19 year old Vaulet averaged 16.9 minutes, 7.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, 0.8 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.4 blocks per game, shooting 50.5% from the field, 66.7% from the line and 10% from three point range. Bahia lost to Penarol in the quarter finals of the Argentinian league, and Vaulet had a big role to play in that; after barely playing to start the season, Vaulet was a key contributor by the end, recording 24 minutes and 13 points in the game five loss in the championship series. Aside from the occasional goose egg - everyone has the occasional goose egg - Vaulet routinely contributed every time he was given minutes, and was the bright spot in an uncompetitive season for the team.

Argentina haven't had much potential come through since the demise of the great era, but the new era is being blooded in as we speak, Vaulet represents one of the more athletic prospects they have had for a while. He is not a shooter, as evidenced by the 10% three point shooting, and seems to release the ball while still on the way up, which isn't good for his rhythm. He is distinctly raw still on the defensive end, lost at times and overplaying people, but not out-toughed. Indeed, his toughness is a virtue, as is his physical profile. Without being a run and jump athlete necessarily, Vaulet is more spry and nimble, laterally quick and with a tremendous motor. He is fast with and without the ball and is always pushing it, the team entrusting the youngster to make plays in the full court, demonstrating the awareness, handle and step-through to be able to get to the rim. A very willing (if too willing) help defender, Vaulet has great recovery speed, timing and anticipation, and if he is prone to mistakes in man to man and isolation defense, there is no reason to assume this will stay the case. He is raw but not hugely so - the skill set has holes in it, most obviously the jump shot, but the poise and IQ is there, as are the tools. It was odd of Vaulet to declare (and stay declared) so early, but it has worked out, and he is one worth monitoring.
