NBA Comparison: Joel Bolomboy

Strengths: Very athletic. Explosive leaper with good physical tools (6’9”, 235 pounds) ... Great timing with his shot blocking (2.4 per game during his two years at Oregon) ... Does a good job swatting shots to his teammates and keeping the play alive ... Doesn’t just block shots out of bounds ... Very active in the paint in terms of contesting shots. Great all-around defender (2x All-Pac-12 Defensive Team) ... Willing to put his body on the line to take charges, dive after loose balls, etc ... Moves really well ... Runs the floor really well in transition. Good at catching lobs for alley-oops ... Has good hands. Has nice form on his shot with good shot selection (63.4% from the field during his two years at Oregon on 4.1 attempts per game) ... Doesn’t take a lot of bad shots. Plays within himself ... Does a good job rolling to the basket after setting screens ... Did a good job improving his foul shooting during his college career (59.4% as a freshman and 67.2% as a sophomore) ...

Weaknesses: While he’s certainly not small for the NBA, he’s averaged sized for an NBA power forward ... If he was an inch or two-taller, that would accentuate his leaping and explosive athleticism even more ... While he does a good job playing within himself, he doesn’t do a lot of scoring outside the paint and only attempted two 3-point shots his entire college career ... He needs to develop more confidence with his shot and be able to space the floor ... Averaged only 6.4 points per game during his career ... Still a project offensively ... While his foul shooting improved, it still needs to get better ... It would be great if he could shoot north of 70% from the line ... For as active as he is, he doesn’t rebound as well as he should (4.7 rebounds per game during his career; 8.5 rebounds per 40 minutes). Needs to improve his ability to crash the glass ... Needs to do a better job avoiding foul trouble (2.6 fouls per game during his career) ... He would have seen the floor more had he not gotten into foul trouble as often.

Overall: Kenny Wooten is an intriguing prospect because of his athleticism and ability to protect the rim ... If he’s able to improve his offensive game and learn how to space the floor, he could find a home in the NBA ... He’s probably going to have to prove his worth in the G-League before finding a spot on an NBA roster ... Could be a nice find for a team if they’re willing to develop him and be patient ...
