Manuchar Markoishvili is a shooting guard who rocketed to prominence as a kid when he stepped out in Euroleague with Benetton Treviso aged just 16. Wherever he has played, he has generally been a success and that is down to his shooting skills and athleticism. As well as posing a threat from the wings, he also possesses very solid fundamentals. Defensively he is particularly good and utilises his quickness in addition to his all-round hustle and appetite to get stops whenever he is on court. Not surprisingly he was one of the more influential players last summer and is a real leader for the Georgian team because of his attitude and general positivity on and off the court.
