Pros:

Decent low post scorer
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Adequate playmaker his size
Solid rebounder
Decent defender
Very good shot blocker
Good athlete
Has good hands

Cons:

Needs to improve his face-up game
Needs to extend his shooting range
Can struggle to score in traffic
Can be too passive on offense
Can be careless on offense, which can lead to turnovers
May be fairly raw offensively
Can be undisciplined defensively

Summary:

Christian Koloko is a very athletic, energetic big man that could project to be a solid rim protector in the NBA.  He can finish plays above the rim, and he is also a good rebounder and shot blocker.  He will need to expand upon his game offensively, and he will also need to be a more disciplined defender in games.  Currently, he is a borderline second round candidate for the 2022 draft.
