Bol Bol’s huge upside makes him the most polarizing prospect (2019 NBA Draft Scouting Report)
ESPN NBA draft analyst Mike Schmitz breaks down the strengths and weaknesses of former Oregon center Bol Bol, who Schmitz calls the most polarizing player in the entire draft. Schmitz says Bol’s only true physical comparison in the NBA is that of Rudy Gobert. Schmitz explains that Bol’s length, agility, offensive skill set and defensive potential make him look like the unquestioned No. 2 pick in the draft, but his lowlights show why he is far from a consensus top 10 pick. Schmitz projects that Bol could be an NBA All-Star, but says the red flags around his physicality, durability and activity are hard to ignore. Schmitz also explains that Bol has all the makings of a top-5 pick, with off-the-charts talent and as much star potential as any player in the entire draft other than Zion Williamson, Ja Morant or RJ Barrett.
