Badji, Ibou Senegal  7'2" 230 C 10/13/02

Badji is an 18 year-old BIG with tremendous untapped potential. He plays for FC Barcelona II in the LEB Silver league. He averages 7 points, 5 rebounds, and 1.6 blocked shots per game in 19 minutes per contest. Right now, Badji is primarily a dunker, rebounder, and shot blocker. His dunks are ferocious! ...Badji is a 61.0% free throw shooter. He had four times as many turnovers as assists. Defensively, Badji shows promise. His DEFRTG was 1.4 points better than his team's DEFRTG. He has a reported 7'8" wingspan. ...We do not think he will be drafted but we would absolutely take a big swing with him. If the flashes he shows turn into consistent highlights, he can be really good. 


Our best advice: in 2002, the 53rd pick was Tamar Slay. We advised, "draft Udonis Haslem."
