Draft Prospect Outlook

Strengths: 

Good spot-up shooter from anywhere on the court; has stretch big man qualities, most important of which his ability to knock down 3-pointers with regularity; good playmaker/passer out of the post


Weaknesses: 

Too predictable as a post player, with favorite move getting to his right hook; often gets caught not moving on offense when he doesn't have the ball; sometimes gets out-rebounded by simply not boxing out or not throwing his body into his nearest man


Deeper Dive:

• Combine: 6-foot-8 with 7-foot-2 wingspan, 8-foot-11 standing reach

• Pro comparison: Marvin Williams

• Could have been drafted in first round last year but returned to Kentucky as a sophomore


• Led Kentucky in scoring, rebounding and 3-point shooting as a sophomore


• Sustained sprained foot late in sophomore season and missed less than two weeks, playing through pain to give UK a lift in the NCAA Tournament
