Draft Notes

Missi is an incredibly mobile, fluid and naturally talented center who is just scratching the surface of his potential.

He runs the floor and changes ends in a flash, has great feet, agility and is a very fluid athlete for a near 7-footer. His coordination allows him to guard all over the court.

Missi is a good rim protector, showing good timing and instincts to go along with good vertical pop. He’ll be an even more effective interior defender as he adds more weight and strength.

Missi is mostly a play finisher on offense with good touch around the rim and from in the lane. He’s a strong finisher who can handle contact and still finish the play.

He’s a good screener and has a good feel for rolling to the rim and catches the ball very well.

His overall game is still raw and developing but the flashes he shows are elite and he has a chance to develop into a big time NBA player.
