NBA ROLE: ATHLETIC RIM PROTECTOR/FINISHER

 

The 38th overall in 2019, Daniel Gafford’s an outstanding athlete at both interior spots; quick second jumper, consistent lob option from anywhere/angle - huge dunk zone* off roll catches (plays big, finishes w/ power); excellent shot-blocker, takes time & waits for opponent to make a mistake before sending back; able to outwork (& jump) a lot of bigs for boards - strong on the o-glass, huge putback threat; must develop 15-17 foot jumper; hook game = work in progress, a couple go-to moves will make a big difference; top tier athlete from day 1? - noticeable every time he plays; slept on in draft process?; spark plug off the bench? - Gafford’s a candidate for backup minutes behind Lauri & WCJ

*could feast around the rim
