Draft Notes

Bidunga is a powerhouse of an athlete; 6-10 and explosive off the ground with a rock solid frame and good length.

He’s fairly new to the American game and is improving at a tremendous rate, showing off elite upside.

Bidunga plays above the rim with ease and has really good hands and a soft touch around the basket. Can score with his back to the basket, showing off a smooth lefty jump hook and can step back and shoot it from mid range.

At this point he’s not much of a threat to score from outside but he is capable of hitting a 3pt shot and this will almost certainly be part of his game at the NBA level.

He also shows off some decent ball handling ability in the open court. Can rip and run and push the ball up the floor. His handles are not yet advanced but the promise is there and you can see the potential of what he will become in time.

He moves exceptionally well in the open court and is a high level athlete with great speed, quickness and agility.

He plays with great energy and hustle.
