Draft Notes

Newell is a big time athlete at the power forward position who immediately passes the eye test when you see him move up and down the floor.

He’s long, explosive, fast and agile and gets off the ground in a hurry. His skills are still developing but he clearly has a NBA level frame.

Like most young bigs he’ll have to continue to expand his offensive game. At this point he lives in the paint and does his damage attacking the rim, on putbacks and scoring in transition.

Has somewhat of a slim build and will have to hit the weights and get bigger.
