Draft Notes

Bol is an extremely long and lanky center prospect who moves really well for his size but will need to add a lot of strength to play at the highest level.

Is a very good shot blocker with solid defensive instincts. Moves well in space and changes ends quickly.

Is still developing his basketball instincts and feel for the game.

Might take a few years of college development before being NBA ready.
