Draft Notes

Arthur Kaluma is an extremely impressive athlete with a chiseled 6-7 frame, great length and a ton of power. He’s the ideal physical profile of a NBA combo forward who can play any position on the court and guard up and down the line up.

I buy his development as a 3pt shooter. It’s still a weakness for him now and he has a long ways to go to get to a consistent, NBA level but I think he’ll get there. The shooting form is good and he steps into his shot with confidence.

Kaluma is a menace on the boards on both ends. He’s able to hold his own against taller players and clean the defensive glass well.

Kaluma doesn’t get the draft buzz that he deserves. A lot of the incoming freshmen get ranked ahead of him in most mocks but Kaluma has a chance to have a major breakout season and could fly up draft boards this winter.
