Amine Noua is a high motor, combination forward that could be a second round pick in the 2019 draft.
He is a player that plays with great energy, as he will look to finish plays around the basket, and he rebounds fairly well when he is on the court. Noua has also been working on his jump shot, and so far he has excelled at making threes so far this season in the French League as well as over the summer in the U20 European Championships.
Right now, he may be a borderline second round prospect, but if Noua continues to play well this year, he could quickly move up draft boards to perhaps secure a spot to be selected when he decides to enter the draft.
