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. So far, he’s played well in his role at North Carolina this season, and he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
