Draft Notes

A high level prospect who has the potential to become a first or early second round pick. He’s been slowed by injuries but the extra time in college could help him enter the league as a more developed player.

Projects as a defensive-focused big who might take a few years to develop (think Clint Capela) but could pay off down the line.

Has excellent quickness and agility for a 6-11 player and makes the game look easy and effortless. Is super smooth with his movements and blows by defenders in the open court with his long strides and great speed.

A solid rim protector who will become even better at defending the paint once he fills out his form and gets stronger. Does the dirty work of rebounding, setting screens and diving to the rim.

Still raw and undeveloped. Will have to continue to become a better outside shooter and work on his ball handling. Doesn’t seem like a player who will help space the floor.

Is a good but not elite shot blocker and defender. He’ll need to turn this into a big strength to get minutes in the NBA.
