NBA Comparison: Vin Baker

Strengths: At 6’10’’, 250 pounds, he possesses a body that NBA teams covet … Led the Seminoles in scoring (13.2 ppg) this past season despite coming off the bench and playing just 21.6 minutes per game … Takes advantage of his limited playing time and dominates both ends of the floor … Extremely long with a 7'3 wingspan ... Crashes the offensive glass (2.1 offensive rebounds per game) … Is a factor as a shotblocker, evidenced by his 56 total blocks on the year … Dominates the rim against smaller frontlines … Versatile offensive player ... Shoots well from three-point range (37%) for a player of his size … 76% FT shooter reinforces the idea that he can become a solid outside shooter at the next level ... Finishes well in the paint and sticks with guards on the perimeter defensively … Climbed up the draft boards after averaging 21.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 2.0 blocks in Florida State’s first two NCAA tournament games against Vermont and Murray State, shooting 64% from the field … Was a defensive menace in the ACC tournament, recording 2.7 blocks per game against Virginia Tech, Virginia and Duke ...

Weaknesses: Lacks in many aspects of decision making, specifically as a passer… Averaged just 0.3 assists per game on the season … Not incredibly quick ... Moves a bit gingerly and wears big knee pads which give the appearance that his knees are not extremely strong ... Has to improve his ball-handling skills … Is very foul prone, fouling nearly three times per game in limited playing time … Developing the ability to consistently knock down jump shots is one of the main areas he needs to improve in … Is a redshirt sophomore and already the age of a junior ...

Outlook:
His stock has been boosted tremendously this March … Projected as a late first round or early second round pick after being one of the biggest risers in this year’s NCAA tournament … Possesses the size, athleticism and a clear skill-set that is desired by NBA teams … Could use an additional season at Florida State ...

Notes: Has great bloodlines. His mother is the sister of all time great center Dikembe Mutombo ... Possesses a 7'3 wingpsan ... From Burlington, Ontario ... As a sophomore at FSU, Kabengele ranked in the top ten in both rebounds and blocks per game in the ACC … Named ACC Sixth Man of the Year … In one of his most impressive games of the season, he stuffed the box score with 24 points, 10 rebounds, three blocks and two steals on January 12th against Duke …
