Draft Notes

Cisse is a great shot blocker to changes the game on the defensive end. He gets off the floor quickly, has good patience and timing and seems to take a lot of pride in defending the rim. He appears to have really good length and can alter shots even when he doesn’t jump.

Moussa Cisse has a lot of athletic upside: he’s a quick and explosive athlete with excellent coordination for a near 7-footer and he changes ends quickly.

At this point he’s not a polished offensive player and has a long ways to go to become a “modern” center, one who can shoot with range and make plays on the perimeter. He’s a rim runner, a lob threat and is starting to figure out some post moves. His quickness off the floor is his best weapon and he’s a threat on the offensive glass.
