NBA Comparison: Marcus Camby

Strengths: 7’0.5 big man with incredible length (7’9.5 wingspan and 9’5 standing reach) and big hands ... Good athlete. Well-coordinated. Runs the floor. Good fluidity ... Changes the game as a defender and covers a lot of ground. Has the potential to be an elite defender at the highest level ... Blocks and alters everything in the paint. Tremendous anchor and help defender. Leaves his feet when necessary, doesn’t pick up bad fouls when players try to throw their body at him ... Shows a solid foundation for a face up game ... Can shoot from midrange pretty consistently. Shows some touch within close with his left hand ... Rebounds everything he can get a hand on. Led the Nike EYBL with 13.9 rebounds per game. Cleans up well around the basket. Keeps the ball high after rebounds, doesn’t allow smaller players to get a hand on it ... Intelligent individual off the court … Knows his limits offensively ... Doesn’t try to do too much. Doesn’t drift to the perimeter or fall in love with jump shooting. Efficient scorer, shot 63.8% from the field for the Nike EYBL ... Plays with tenacity ... Constantly tracked by the defense ... Good energy level. Stays alert for the pass ... Continues to bring it even when he’s not heavily involved with the offense or getting many touches ... Plays under control, doesn’t get rushed … Extremely bright kid who got offers from Ivy league schools like Harvard ...

Weaknesses: Minimal offensive skills ... Gets a high majority of his points off of simply catching and finishing. Isn’t always involved with the offense or has it run for him ... Solid athlete, but not overly explosive, which diminishes his ability to some degree as a rim protector ... Shows signs of facing up but has a ways to go before becoming a stretch big man ... Post game is in its early stages of development. Lacks muscle memory on jump hooks ... Has room to get stronger ... Needs to further develop his feel for the game ... Rarely makes progress when he puts the ball on the floor. Doesn’t handle double teams well ...

Outlook: Bamba possesses incredible physical tools but a raw skillset with great long term potential on both ends of the floor. His development is far from finished and his presence is felt when he takes the floor, even without putting up big numbers in the scoring column. Bamba had a strong Nike EYBL season and helped PSA Cardinals to the Peach Jam Championship game.

Notes: Committed to University of Texas on 5/18/2017 ... Measured 6’11.5’’ in shoes, with a 7’8’’ wingspan and 196 lbs at the 2015 Nike Basketball Academy
