Goodluck Okonoboh NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-9 - Power Forward -

An above-the-rim PF who can really defend in the lane.

Pros
Okonoboh is a quick leaper who can really play above the rim. He's got good length and nice hops. Shows good timing on his jumps (both rebounding and blocking shots) and is always a threat for a put-back dunk.

Is a standout on defense who changes a lot of shots in paint. Gets vertical quickly and has good discipline, rarely going for pump fakes or committing silly fouls.Slides his feet well and plays with good understanding and positioning.

His scoring is mostly limited to in the lane but he's developing a good feel and soft touch around the basket (when he's not throwing down dunks). Plays with good energy.

Cons
Has less than ideal size for the NBA level and will have to either bulk up a lot or develop some stretch-four ability (or both).

Has a limited offensive game at this point and needs work developing a mid range game and better ball skills.

Projection: possible second round pick in the 2017 NBA Draft
