Mohamed Bamba is expected to be one of the top selections in the NBA with his combination of elite shotblocking and how he projects as a potential floor spacer.
Bamba has a 7'9 wingspan.
“I think he’s the best shot blocker I’ve ever seen," said one Big 12 assistant coach. "He’ll be able to protect the rim like very few have in the NBA. He can control a whole portion of the court. I think he has to get better footwork to guard ball screens. He’s very capable. His length, once he gets the footwork down, is going to allow him to be a real presence.”
“It’s just abnormal,” a scout said. “He can grab the rim without jumping. Stuff you can’t teach.”
