Draft Notes

Okpara is a really intriguing long term prospect at the center position. He’s got really good length, height and hops and gets far above the rim on both ends.

Is a great rim protector and overall solid interior defender who can also guard in space. Has rare athletic tools for his size.

Knows his role as a rim protector, rim runner and rebounder and doesn’t try to do too much. Can score in the post and is always a lob threat.

Does all the dirty work and brings great energy on the court.
