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 played well in his role at North Carolina as a sophomore, and he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2022 draft.
