Decent low post scorer

Summary:

Baba Miller is a very athletic, energetic combo forward that thrives at making hustle plays on both ends of the floor.  He handles the ball well for his size, and he can ably score off the dribble or in the post.  He is a rangy defender that can get steals and blocks.  He will need to be a more consistent shooter, and he will have to take better care of the basketball and improve his rebounding. 

Miller is a very athletic big man that could develop into a versatile player that could play all three frontcourt positions. Unfortunately, he hasn’t quite put up as strong numbers as expected in college basketball. Still, Miller may be a fairly high-upside prospect that could end up getting selected in the second round of the 2025 draft.
