Overview
Okobo is a fast-rising prospect who's been lighting it up for the past few months in France. He's an athletic PG with a nice frame and good length. He's got great quickness, a solid feel for the game and scoring instincts.

Strengths
  • Has a great build for a PG with size, length and quick-twitch athleticism
  • Excels at penetrating and scoring in the lane, or using his quickness to warp the defense and find the open man
  • Can score from 3 levels and can shoot with range
  • A talented ball-handler with a well developed off hand (he's a lefty)
  • Has a filthy crossover and an elite first step
  • Has a strong build and can score through contact
  • Knows how to run an offense and is a true point guard, even though he likes to score the ball
Weaknesses
  • Has a bit of low release on his jumper
  • Is turnover prone and needs to learn to play with better control and consistently make the right decisions with the ball
Comparisons
  • Dennis Schroeder
Projection: late first to mid second round pick in the 2018 NBA Draft
