Draft Notes

A long, skinny center prospect with good movement skills and knows his role. Has the physical tools to develop into a solid NBA prospect and has long-term upside.

Does most of his work around the basket looking for lobs and tip ins. Doesn’t project as much of an offensive player besides this limited role.

A solid rim protector who could develop into a good NBA level shot blocker but will have to continue to increase his athleticism, timing and gain strength.
