UNDERDOG

NBA ROLE: ATHLETIC, HYBRID 4/5

 

Nerlens Noel is a different vibe from most other bigs – absolute stat-sheet stuffer* – makes an honorable impact in nearly every category, especially blocks & steals; slight frame, though Noel does a nice job of help-side swatting and closing out on shooters; offense remains a work in progress – Nerlens isn’t a natural scorer but is nifty w/ his left hand, can finish roll catches over the top and is active on the o-boards; needs to either fix the hitch in his J or develop into a bonafide stopper up front; varied threat in OKC? – there’s no questioning his upside as a 'third' big – can Billy Donovan maximize his unique talents?
