Mouhamed Gueye is a super intriguing young big man with awesome fluidity, agility, length and talent.
Just from a physical standpoint alone he looks the part of an NBA level athlete and he shows flashes of talent that will have NBA scouts salivating.
Gueye was part of a loaded Prolific Prep team in high school and didn’t get a ton of touches or have the spotlight on him but he’s a big time talent with intriguing up side. He re-classed and joined the Washington State program and two years later he’s a possible NBA draft pick (most likely in the mid second round).
One of the things that stands out about Gueye is his fluid athleticism and movement skills. He runs the floor like a guard and has elite level agility for a 6-10 to 6-11 player.
He’s got a nice perimeter game and the makings of a solid jump shot, showing great form and a natural shooting motion. He’ll need to get a bit more consistent and continue to hone his craft but all the makings are their of a dangerous 6-11 jump shooter.
Gueye handles the ball well for a big and can bring the ball up the court and make plays off the bounce.
He also does a good job of protecting the rim. He’s not a true center or defensive anchor but can offer good rim protection and interior defense for a PF.
