NBA DRAFT SCOUTING REPORT
|POSITION: PF||FROM: Spain||HT: 6-8||WT: 230|
|BORN: 3/09/02||YEAR: 02||WING: 7-2||REACH: NA|
Usman is a powerful, mobile and graceful athlete who has awesome length with a +6 wingspan and a nice NBA frame.
He’s a high energy guy (think Kenneth Fareid) who runs the floor hard, sets good screens and brings a lot of energy on defense. He’s a smart defender who knows when to leave his feet and how to play with proper position. He plays with good awareness and is a good help defender and weak-side shot blocker.
His offensive game is mostly dunks and layups. He does a good job in the pick and roll and cuts hard to the basket. The rest of his offensive game is a work in progress but he shows flashes of ball handling, passing and perimeter shooting.
Garuba is a likely first rounder in the 2021 draft.
