PROJECTED DRAFT POSITION: 15 TO LOW 20’S
PLAYER SUMMARY: As great as De’Aaron Fox and Malik Monk have played for Kentucky this year, Bam Adebayo might just be the Wildcats most important player. He has provided the interior presence that was lacking on the team last season. The former 5-star recruit has been very steady all year long.
The 6’10” freshmen already has an NBA ready body. The 19-year old is as strong a player as there is in college basketball. We love the demeanor that he plays with . He has an edge to him in that he wants to be the best player on the court. He has all the necessary tools to become an excellent NBA player in 3-4 years.
His strengths right now lie at the defensive end of the court. Adebayo shows great tenacity while rebounding the ball. He has also become a very good shot-blocker. These 2 skills should translate well to the NBA level. The PF/C is a very good athlete for his size and weight. He gets up and down the court very well for a big-man.
While Adebayo has shown to be a defensive stalwart, his offensive game needs to be refined. He scores a lot of his points on monstrous dunks at this point in his development. We have seen flashes of a little jump-hook that he has effectively used, albeit it is inconsistent. Adebayo will need to develop a 12-15 foot jump-shot. He shows a nice shooting stroke for a player his size, however, he is inconsistent. His back to the basket game has improved since arriving at Kentucky but still has a ways to go. He is also a weak free-throw shooter.
We do believe Adebayo will improve at the offensive end. As previously mentioned, he has nice shooting mechanics. He will need to get into the gym and work on his offensive game the second Kentucky’s season ends. He isn’t featured much in the Wildcats offense as they are mostly a guard oriented team.
Bam Adebayo is a player who we firmly believe is going to be a real good NBA player. His defensive ability is going to help an NBA team immediately because he has the body that can compete in the NBA right now. How good he eventually becomes will be in his offensive development. If the big-man can develop a few low-post moves, teams will have to respect him on offense. We are high on Adebayo, perhaps more than others are. His athletic ability and defensive ability alone is going to make him a 12-15 year NBA player.
