An athletic left-handed forward that can score from multiple spots on the floor. Plays well both above (with incredible body control) and below the rim (with post game).
NBA Comparison: Chris Bosh
DeAndre Ayton, Arizona
An athletic, well built center. Great rebounding and shot-blocking ability as well as powerful finishing around and above the rim.

A crafty guard with both a unique passing and scoring ability. He can finish layups from multiple angles as well as make the tough, home-run passes. Very polished offensively.

Michael Porter Jr., Missouri
A long and lengthy forward that can play both the 3 or the 4 position. Nice shooting ability (from deep and mid-range) and is able to rise above most defenders to get off a clean shot. Draws fouls when going to the rim.
NBA Comparison: Paul George
Mohamed Bamba, Texas
A 7' stature with an 8' wingspan. Great rebounding overall defensive and blocking attributes. There is plenty of filling-out left to do.
