Texas’ Mohamed Bamba makes his case with Suns

Postado Junho 10, 2018

His ability to protect the rim I think will be elite at the National Basketball Association level, in addition to his ability to rebound the ball.

"The question for Mo is can he fill out his body the way Rudy has?"

Mohamed Bamba (4) of the Texas Longhorns stands on the court during the game with the Kansas Jayhawks at the Frank Erwin Center on December 29, 2017 in Austin, Texas. Aside from their physical traits, their focus on protecting the rim and cleaning the glass makes them an immediate anchor for any frontcourt. "I think Mo probably is a little more mobile at the same age and Rudy is probably stronger, more physically developed at the same age".

Bamba, who turned 20 last month, previously shot with the ball well behind his head, form McDonough described as like a "slingshot".

Bamba has a 7-foot-10 wingspan, the largest ever recorded at the National Basketball Association combine.

McDonough calls Bamba "a super-bright guy, one of the smarter guys I've seen in the last 10 or 15 years come through the pre-draft process". "I definitely believe I'm the No. 1 pick", Bagley said, "and if the Suns take me I'll definitely show them why".

Bagley on the other hand, is still open to working out with other National Basketball Association teams picking in the lottery. Ayton said the Suns were the only team he's working out with. However, it is still hard to imagine Phoenix selecting the former Texas product over Ayton with the first overall pick at this time. Bagley said he, not Ayton, deserves to be. He has scheduled workouts with the Sacramento Kings and Atlanta Hawks, the teams picking 2nd and 3rd respectively. "It's something that obviously I worked my butt off for, and my whole thing is to put it in very short sentences. The Suns are more than a flawless fit for me".
