Draft Prospect Outlook

STRENGHTS

  • Tough, physical and energetic big man who plays with an always-hot motor on both ends
  • Strong presence on the interior, especially as a rebounder and post scorer
  • Affects shots around the rim with his impeccable timing, smarts, and 7-foot-4 wingspan

WEAKNESSES

  • More traditional, old-school big in college despite flashes of shooting touch; took just 20 3s in college and made 25%
  • Committed nearly three times as many turnovers (71) as assists (27); shaky decision-maker and passer
  • Wasn't asked often to defend on the perimeter at Washington, but likely will be asked to do so in the NBA -- where he'll likely struggle

PRO COMPARISON: Julius Randle
