BORN: 4/15/00YEAR: So.WING: NAREACH: NA

Draft Notes

Has some “true center” attributes but also shows some promise with his outside shooting. Isn’t the most mobile player but has enough lateral quickness to hold his own defensively.

Isn’t much of shot blocker (less than 1 per game as a sophomore) and is more of a below the rim defender who relies on positioning and anticipation.

Has a good touch around the basket and can hit the mid range shot. Doesn’t do any one thing particularly well and could struggle to find minutes at the NBA level.

Knows the game, makes good decisions, keeps the ball moving and is a willing passer.
