Charles Bassey NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-11 - Combo Forward - TX

An elite level prospect who has the potential to become a top five pick. Nigerian born player who is honing his craft in Texas, on his way to the NBA.

Pros
Has excellent quickness and agility for a young 6-10 player and makes the game look easy and effortless. Is super smooth with his movements and blows by defenders in the open court with his long strides and great speed.

Can handle the ball in the open court and even bring the ball up to facilitate the offense. Plays multiple positions and has elite versatility.

Is as physically gifted as any player in the high school ranks. Can play above the rim with ease and is match up nightmare due to his ability to play just about any position on the court.

A solid rim protector who will become even better at defending the paint once he fills out his form and gets stronger.

Cons
Still raw and undeveloped. Will have to continue to become a better outside shooter and work on his ball handling.

Must add a lot of strength.

Comparisons
Reminds of Anthony Davis with some Giannis in his game.

Projection: top 5 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft
