Draft Notes

A late-blooming big man from Angola who has NBA size and a lot of potential. He’s far from a finished package and will likely take a few years to contribute at the next level but he’s got an intriguing mix of size, length and athleticism.

  • Has an NBA frame with broad shoulders, excellent strength and length
  • Knows his role and does a lot of the dirty work of rebounding, defending, setting screens and crashing the glass
  • Holds position well and isn’t afraid to mix it up in the lane, on both ends of the floor
  • Hits a good percentage from the foul line (mid 70’s) and will likely develop a jump shot as his game matures
  • Has excellent mobility for his size, showing good balance, developing footwork and open court speed.
  • Has a limited offensive game and scores mostly on put-backs and dunks
  • Doesn’t handle the ball well
  • Lacks a consistent mid range shot
  • Turnover prone and foul prone
