Fernando, Bruno  Maryland 6'10" 237 C soph.  Fernando averaged 13.6 points, and 10.6 rebounds per game in 2018-19. He was named to the First Team All Big-Ten, as well as the Big Ten All-Defensive team. He can score inside or step out to the elbow and knock down face-up jumpers. …Bruno anchored the Terps defense. His DEFRTG was 6.5 points better than the Maryland team DEFRTG. He has a standing reach of 9'2".  …Fernando has a relatively soft touch on his shot. He makes 77.9% FT. He led the Big Ten in Effective Field Goal Percentage. ...Fernando only attempted ten, three-point shots this season (he made three) but his good-looking stroke suggests he will be able to make NBA threes with continued progress.  Fernando finished sixth in the Big Ten in boxscore plus/minus. ...We view Fernando. in his prime, as a starting NBA pivot. ...Bruno is likely drafted in the back half of round one. We think that will prove to be too late for a player of his considerable skill and size. 


Good Advice: In 2012, the 18th pick in the NBA Draft was Terrence Jones. We advised, "Draft Draymond Green."
