Draft Prospect Outlook

Strengths: 

Excellent shooter with range that extends beyond the 3-point line; great shot-blocker; can score off the dribble and as a spot-up shooter; guard skills as a driver and dribbler


Weaknesses: 

Has potential as a solid defender, but vulnerable when put in pick-and-roll on perimeter; injury history with foot that required surgery for 7-footer causes concern; lack of weight despite huge frame also a concern; unconventional shot release that might require fine tuning; frail


Deeper Dive:

• Combine: 7-foot-7 wingspan; 208 pounds; 7-foot-3 in shoes

• Pro comparison: Better shooting Thon Maker

• Played only nine games at Oregon before sustaining season-ending stress fracture to navicular bone in his left foot that required surgery in January 2019


• Second-longest wingspan measured at the 2019 NBA Combine at 7-foot-7
