Draft Notes

Sharp is obviously incredibly tall and big but what stands out about him is his mobility at that size. It’s not every day you see a 7-5 player move the way he does. Sharp has good running form, changes ends well and is light on his feet. We’ve seen some other really tall dudes try to make it in the league but none that had Sharpe’s level of fluid athleticism.

The JUCO transfer had a strong season at Western Kentucky hitting an absurd 73% from the field for 8.2 points per game. He posted an impressive 4.6 blocks per game and really made his presence felt on the defensive end of the court.

In the NBA he’ll be asked to do a few things, namely rebounding and defending the rim. He’s not useful on the offensive end besides cleaning up the glass for some put-backs but could bring enough value as a defender to get a long look from NBA teams.
