Needs to improve his shooting

Summary:

Arthur Kaluma is an athletic, energetic combo forward that excels at making hustle plays to help his team on both ends of the floor.  Hailing from Uganda, he played very well in the 2023 FIBA World Cup qualifiers.  In the meantime, he’ll need to improve his jump shot, as well as his passing and ball handling skills to add more dimensions to his game. He is a talented prospect that could end up being a second round pick in the 2023 draft.
