NBA Comparison: Kristaps Porzingis

Strengths: 7’2 mobile center … Great size and length, possessing a 7’5 wingspan and 9’6 standing reach. Shrinks the floor and covers a lot of ground defensively with a wide radius of reach … The game comes easy for Bol as he has a good basketball IQ and is naturally talented … Good fluidity, coordination, athleticism, and versatility. Can adjust his shot on layups in the air with good body control … Very disruptive defender with potential to be elite at the highest level ... Tremendous shot blocker who has very quick reflexes and solid lateral speed ... Led the Nike EYBL with 4.5 per game ... Alters the shots he doesn’t block and forces the offense to put more arc than usual on their shot to shoot over his extended contest ... Does a tremendous job of staying out of foul trouble while contesting shots and protecting the paint, only 1.3 fouls per game over the Nike EYBL … Finished third in scoring on the Nike EYBL with 24.1 points per game … Good rebounder with ten per game over the Nike EYBL. Reliable cleaning up around the basket … Will fight for post position. Very good touch within close with either hand ... Can score from midrange, on the move and off the dribble. Shot 65.6% from the floor on the Nike EYBL. At the EYBL in Indianapolis, he scored a total of 119 points over four games and only missed 15 shots (75%), also 10-14 from three (71.4%) … Can put the ball on the floor better than the majority 7’0+ players … Can score inside and out. Has ability to stretch the floor. Shot 48.9% (22-45) from three over the Nike EYBL. Can shoot on the move. Has very good arc on his shot, most of his makes don’t hit the rim. While he shoots well, he doesn’t settle for too many threes … Reliable free throw shooter at 83.3% over the Nike EYBL … Passes the ball well. Can see over the defense and bullet pass to the open man. Can distribute out of the high post …

Weaknesses: Strength is his biggest hurdle, as in order to be effective around the basket on both ends, being able to withstand contact and battle for position will be imparitive ... Needs to work on conditioning and hustling up the court ... Often the last player up the floor, going at his own pace, and showing no urgency to sprint. Lacks intensity … While his shooting yields great results, his release is low, allowing smaller defenders to get a hand on it especially when they’re anticipating. He should focus on developing a higher release point on his shot … Doesn’t have much strength, only weighing 226 pounds, and may have a body type that will make it difficult for him to carry much additional weight ... Can be bothered by contact … While he defends very well, he doesn’t have the quickest feet … He can mishandle passes on the move, sometimes trying to dunk or make a move before he catches the ball … Will benefit from expanding his post-game at the next level and beyond …

Outlook: Son of Manute Bol … Transferred to Findlay Prep for his senior season … Transferred to Mater Dei for his junior season. One of the few teams to beat Chino Hills with Bol contributing 14 points, 15 rebounds, and five blocks … Bol had a breakout summer playing with California Supreme with a 13-3 record … His combination of elite tools, presence on both ends of the floor, and efficiency put him in conversation for the top overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft …

Notes: Son of former 7'7 NBA player, Manute Bol ... Measured 7'2 without shoes, 7'3 with shoes, 220 lbs, with a 7'8 wingspan and 9'7 standing reach at the June 2017 USA U19 tryouts ...
