Adidas Next Generation Tournament Valencia - December 2019
By Biel Colominas
Malwaya had an impressive performance in Valencia being two years younger than the level of competition. His body, huge wingspan and above average athleticism make him an intriguing player who hasn’t reached his physical and athletic celling. Malwaya plays with non stop motor and fearless attitude all over the court, being extremely aggressive with every move he does. Still not skilled enough to create off the dribble at this level of competition, he is effective moving off the ball and cutting to the rim, showing good feel to make these cuts to receive the ball while running or to grab offensive boards. He takes good decisions while driving to the basket, as he is able to use floaters, to make quick reads to facilitate for his teammates and score without shying away of contact. He didn’t show any shooting in Valencia. Malwaya proved to have a ridiculous potential as a versatile defender thanks to his level of activity, excellent lateral mobility, length and athleticism. He fights to come over screens and doesn’t leave from physical competition.
