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. He is having a very good season this year, and he is currently a second round prospect for the 2024 draft.
