NBA Comparison: Mohamed Bamba

Strengths: 6’11 big man … Great size and length with a 7’3.5 wingspan … Improved strength throughout high school and plays through contact … Fluid, high-level athlete, and very good motor. Consistently runs the floor and finishes above the rim very well … Exceptional shot blocker that projects to translate at higher levels. Good length and timing on the defensive end, pops off the ground quickly. Challenges every shot/dunk at the rim and gets chase downs on occasions. Averaged 2.1 blocks per game over the Nike EYBL in 2018 and finished 2nd in 2019 with 4.6 per game, including 11 in a single game against Team Durant … Made noticeable improvement in shooting range. After missing his only 3PT attempt over the Nike EYBL in 2019, he was a threat from the perimeter the following high school season, hitting shots off the dribble on occasions … Reliable and efficient finisher. Shot 57.6% FG% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2018. Averaged 12.1 points per game on 59.8% FG% over the Nike EYBL in 2019 … Very good rebounder on both ends. Averaged 11.6 rebounds per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019, including 21 in a single game against BABC … Impacts both ends when he’s on the floor … Plays with good confidence …

Weaknesses: Still working on expanding his offensive game. While his outside shot has shown tremendous growth, he can still improve consistency and can be too quick with the trigger … Poor free throw shooter. Shot 56% FT% over the Nike EYBL in 2018 and 45.9% FT% in 2019 … He also has room to expand his low post offensive game, in footwork, as he travels at times and his touch is still developing as he lacks muscle memory on jump hooks. A lot of his points come from rim running and cleaning up offensive boards … Tries to do too much as a ball handler at times. Will take a defensive rebound and put it on the floor through traffic to turn it over or make a wild pass leading to a turnover when he should get the ball to a guard. Holds the ball too long at times. Averaged 3 turnovers per game over the Nike EYBL in 2019 …

Outlook: Memphis freshman … Transferred to Lausanne Collegiate Academy for his final year of high school … 2020 Tennessee Mr. Basketball …
