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 in which he helped lead his team to the 2022 NCAA National Championship game, and he recently announced that he will be returning to North Carolina for next season.
Recently, Armando Bacot announced that he will return for another season, and he is currently a second round prospect for the 2024 draft.
