Overview
Precious Achiuwa is a big wing/combo forward with elite level athletic ability. He's got a strong frame with good length and explosive leaping ability. He has great coordination and body control and he plays with a level of refinement usually seen in older players. He can play the 4 position but his best NBA position will be as a big wing and he's already showing advanced perimeter skills. Achiuwa has a lot of upside and looks like he's on a fast track to the NBA.
