Bam Adebayo is a very athletic, big man that could be a solid rim protector at the next level. He is a good inside scorer that can aptly score on a lot of hustle plays, and he also is a very good rebounder and shot blocker. He may need to improve upon the finer points of the game, but he is an intriguing prospect that could likely be a first round pick in 2017.
