Summary:

Armando Bacot is a strong, mobile big man that could project to be a rotational big man in the NBA.  He can score in the post, and he also is a very good rebounder.  He has the potential to excel as an interior defender, but he will need to improve his focus and defend better on a consistent basis.  He also will need to improve his face-up game.  He had a very good junior season, and he recently announced that he will be returning to North Carolina for next season. Currently, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2023 draft.
