NBA DRAFT SCOUTING REPORT
|POSITION: C||FROM: Turkey||HT: 6-10||WT: 240|
|BORN: 7/25/02||YEAR: 02||WING: NA||REACH: NA|
Sengun is big-bodied pf/c who really throws his weight around the court and makes his presence felt. As a teenager he’s able to play bully ball against grown men in the Turkish league and has put up monster stats.
He’s got a wide base and natural strength (but also a lot of room for improvement with his strength and conditioning).
He does a good job of making himself available in the post and has a good understanding of spacing, screening, cutting and how to make plays within the flow of the offense. He’s got a soft touch around the basket and shoots a very high percentage from the field. He’s also got some pick and pop ability and the makings of a nice mid range jumper. He’ll almost certainly become an effective 3pt shooter in time.
Sengun is more of a heavy, plodding big man and not an elite run/jump athlete. He can play above the rim a bit but he doesn’t live there. His heavy feet and slow-ish movements could be a liability defending against NBA pick and roll and his lack of length and vertical pop limit his ability to guard at the rim.
