Amar Sylla is a combo forward that has been receiving significant buzz to start the season. Numerous sites have him listed as a first round prospect based on his performances in the juniors, but he has not played at the highest professional basketball leagues. If he can prove that he can play well against top-notch competition, he could end up going high in the first round in 2020.
