Draft Notes

Kamagate is an athletic center with a clear NBA level frame who shows flashes of ability. He’s a rim-running and shot blocking big with great tools to work with.

Has a lot of bounce off the floor and elevates quickly. Can finish above the rim and over defenders.

Has the makings of a mid range jumper. Shoots kind of a knuckle-ball and doesn’t have a smooth release but can hit shots from mid range. Doesn’t project as a floor spacer.

Changes ends really well and makes himself available for lobs and gets in position for put-backs.

Is a strong defender who has upside as a defensive anchor/rim protector.

Will take some time to develop but could pay off in the long run for a team willing to be patient.
