Bol, Bol Oregon 7'3" 208 PF frosh.  Bol is a good shooter that also happens to have a seven foot, seven inch wingspan. The son of NBA legend Manute Bol, Bol Bol played in just nine games at Oregon before a foot injury. In those nine games, he averaged 21 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 2.7 blocked shots. He shot 53% from beyond the college arc!  ...His biggest flaw is decision making. Bol had twice as many turnovers as assists. Clearly, he looks to score first. On defense, Bol was disruptive. Oregon wound up being 7.2 points per 100 possessions better on defense when Bol was in the game. Folks wonder about his lateral mobility but he makes up for so much because of his long reach.  ...Bol will need to gain strength. He weighed in at 208 lbs., at the NBA Draft Combine. ...Foot injuries are scary to me. I saw, first-hand, how Pervis Ellison's feet hurt the progress of the Sacramento Kings. That said, progress in medicine gives me hope. Teams are unbelievably well-equipped to get players as healthy as possible in 2019. This draft is void of "pop" beyond the top-three picks. Bol might be the only player left after Zion, Ja, and RJ, with a chance to be GREAT. We think Bol is likely drafted in the teens of the first round. That is TREMENDOUS value. I'd go as far as to say I'd try to acquire a pick in the 15 to 18 range for a shot at drafting him. 


Good Advice: In 2011, the 5th pick in the NBA Draft was Jonas Valanciunas. We advised, "Draft Kawhi Leonard."
