NBA Draft 2018 Scouting Profile: Mohamed Bamba

The Colossal Titan’s value is clear; he’s got top-of-the-2K-slider length, and he knows how to use it. But while his shot-blocking abilities and promising summer workout schedule make him an enticing prospect, he’s more of a project on offense than his eventual draft slot will suggest.

NBA Draft 2018 Scouting Profile: Marvin Bagley III

High effort and higher verticality define Bagley’s game, but he’s got some major concerns around his defensive awareness and his offensive polish.

The two-time champion is one of the better 3-and-D prospects in recent years, and his strong development during his final season at Villanova hints that there is plenty of growth still to come.

NBA Draft 2018 Scouting Profile: Deandre Ayton

The brute force that the Bahamian titan can throw around was unmatched in college, and while it’s fair to question his full ceiling given his defensive weaknesses, his combination of low-post success, face-up game potential, and physical tools make him arguably the best prospect in the class.

With draft day nearly upon us, we take a look at ten players expected to go in the second round that Sacramento might be looking at drafting.

Fox blends a gamebreaking agility, high-end playmaking potential, and scary shooting percentages into one, dangerously intriguing package.

NBA Draft 2017 Scouting Profile: Jawun Evans

The leader of the non-lottery tier of point guards, Evans led a lackluster Oklahoma State team to NCAA tournament berth with excellent efficiency.

NBA Draft 2017 Scouting Profile: Malik Monk

Monk offers an explosive offensive game, a 40% three-point stroke, and the ability to catch fire and ride an extended hot streak. Could he fit in with the Kings crowded SG core?

NBA Draft 2017 Scouting Profile: Donovan Mitchell

This years’ draft riser, Mitchell is a tough, gritty defensive guard with an improved shot and TNT-infused athleticism.
