Draft Notes

Oscar transferred from West Virginia to Kentucky where he’s part of a deep frontcourt and will provide a veteran presence inside.

He’s a powerful player who combines brute strength and great length with good balance and agility. He’s got physical skills but has struggled to put it all together on the court and is not looking likely to be drafted anytime soon.

Shot blocking and defending in the paint are his calling cards. He’s a quick leaper who is always looking to alter or block shots inside. He’s not the biggest center around but he’s got great length with a 7-4 wingspan.

At this point he’s a limited offensive player who scores mostly on put backs and dunks. He doesn’t project as a much of a floor spacer at any point in his career.
