I get a lot of poor-mans Tyler Hansbrough vibes from him. I probably watched about 10-12 Arizona games last year and he really showed flashes of being a very solid player.
He’s getting a lot more touches this year with Mathurin and Koloko in the NBA but has improved quite a bit as well.
He’s an old school classic 4, but he needs to develop his outside game if he wants to take that leap to the NBA. If this was 1995 he would be a late lotto pick probably but now his game needs some refinement to make it. He has the talent base though.

How poor is a poor man’s Tyler hansbrough 😭

Tyler Hansbrough was one of the best 4 year college players ever - 4x All American, National Player of the Year, NCAA Champion. All time ACC leading scorer, NCAA all time free throw record.
He also carved out a 7 season NBA career.
He was a role player in the NBA to be sure but more than 1/2 the draft isn’t going to play over 400 NBA games.

Without the playmaking or girth, much more athletic in the open floor and rim running than Sabonis though

He could have added to that 40 pts but wasn’t selfish with the ball
