NBA DRAFT SCOUTING REPORT
|POSITION: SF||FROM: Auburn||HT: 6-6||WT: 225|
|BORN: 1/26/01||YEAR: Fr.||WING: 6-9||REACH: NA|
Okoro is a high energy player and disruptive defender who changes the game with his play. He’s very active on both ends of the court and has great strength, dynamic athleticism and a motor that runs hot.
His defensive ability is truly special. He can guard just about every position on the court and is also a great help defender who can give help and then recover to his man as well as any prospect in this class.
He runs the floor hard and is a load to handle once he gets up a head of steam. He’s got a big build, broad shoulders and a lot of strength and he uses it well.
He’s not a polished offensive prospect and needs to get consistent hitting the 3pt shot and has work to do developing his ball handling skills. He does a good job of driving the ball and using his power to score through contact. He can finish in a variety of ways and has really good touch around the rim.
He also is good at the drive and kick, finding 3pt shooters off the bounce. He’s very right hand dominant at this point and does most of his damage going to the right.
His shooting form shows some promise but is inconsistent. With NBA training and a few more years of practice he should become a capable and consistent 3pt shooter.
He might not be a star at the next level but he projects as a high level role player/glue-guy who could develop into a high level starter/all-star down the road.
