Bol Bol NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-11 - Center Forward - KS

Insanely long and uniquely athletic player with very intriguing upside.

Pros
His awesome height and length make him a force to be reckoned with in the paint. Should top out at over 7 feet tall and maybe even reach the 7-7 height of his father Manute Bol.

Has surprising coordination and speed for a lanky youngster, and a developing skill set. Can step out and shoot threes and has a nice release on his shot. Nearly impossible to block due to his height. Handles the ball very well for a 6-11 player and has some SF skills.

A major force in the defensive paint who blocks a lot of shots and changes many more.

Cons
Is rail thin and needs to add a lot of muscle to hold his own at the top levels.

Does he have the will to be great and a love of the game?

Needs to develop his post game and not fall in love with the outside shot.

Comparisons
Reminds me of a poor man's Kristaps Porzingis but probably won't reach the same level.

Projection: possible first round pick in the 2019 or 2020 NBA Draft
