Projected Draft Range: Mid 1st Round
2023 NBA Draft: Round 1, Pick 7 by the Indiana Pacers
(Rights traded to the Washington Wizards)
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Solid rebounder for his size
Very good athlete
May struggle to create his own shot
Can be too passive on offense
Can be careless on offense, which can lead to turnovers
Bilal Coulibaly is a very athletic, energetic swingman that currently plays for the Metropolitans 92. He will look to make hustle plays, and he played significantly better as the season progressed. He showed an improved outside shot this past year and projects well into a 3 and D role at the NBA level, but he will still need to prove to NBA teams that he can be a consistent outside shooter and can ably create his own shot on offense. Currently, he projects to go in the mid first round for the 2023 draft.
