Draft Notes

Moreno is a fast rising center prospect who looks the part of a future NBA draft pick, with first round potential.

At 7-1 with a solid frame he’s got the size to man the post at the highest level. He’s a solid athlete who shows coordination and strength, while not being the most explosive player.

Is mainly a back to the basket player and in the lane scorer but is starting to show some face-up ability. Can put the ball on the deck a few times and make moves to the hoop.

Has good timing as a shot blocker and does a good job of letting the offensive player jump first. His size and length really impact the defensive end and allow him to control the glass on both ends.
