KZ Okpala

Can someone give me the run down on him? I’m on the east coast so I don’t catch many of his games but there’s a bunch of different opinions on him it seems. On here he’s top 10 but other places don’t have him until the 20’s

a very skilled 6'9 forward

a very skilled 6'9 forward that handles the ball like a guard..has a 7'2 wingspan,has improved his 3 point shooting from last season,gets to the ft line 5.6 times a game....he reminds me of brandon ingram...and like ingram,he can be a little 2 laid back at times and needs to get stronger....in 3 years he could be 1 of the best players from the 2019 draft...

Could very well measure in at

Could very well measure in at 6'9 at the combine. The Ingram comparisons are good. Right now he's a long wing that projects to be a very versatile pro. Great running the floor, smooth player in the triple threat position, underrated playmaker and a decent ull up.Good intangibles, smart guy, coachable and hardworking. His free throw shooting and three point shooting is inconsitant even for the college level and he needs to bulk up which maybe hard for him to do. He's got a legit chance of being picked anywhere from 4th on in this draft and could end up being a special player.

He has nice size and

He has nice size and athleticism for a wing. He is good at getting to the basket, has become a very good shooter, he needs to get stronger and become a better defender. I think Ingram is a better defender that Okpala as Okpala is only a one way player right now.

From what I've seen he's

From what I've seen he's similar to Ingram in play style and build, but he has even less core strength at the same age and doesn't have the same type of playmaking ability. I wouldn't draft him with a top 10 pick, seems closer to Mo Harkless than Ingram

I think he is more well

I think he is more well rounded than Ingram in his style at the same stage, I think he has Kris Midelton ceiling
