Adem Bona is an athletic, Turkish big man that could project to be a very good rim protector in the NBA. He is a high-motor player that has a solid first step that enables him to score and excel as a finisher at the rim, and he is also a very good rebounder and interior defender. He will need to be more assertive on offense, will need to improve his outside shot, and be less foul prone in games. He is a talented prospect that projects to go in the second round range for the 2024 draft.
