Darel Poirier is an athletic, skilled big man that had recently played this season in the G-League for the Capital City Go-Go, a team that is an affiliate of the Washington Wizards. Poirier can shoot the basketball and block shots, and he was a solid contributor for Capital City this year.
Recently, he signed to play in Italy for Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia according to Sportando. Poirier will need to continue to shoot the ball well, and he will have to improve his ability to get rebounds, but his skill set could enable him to be a potential second round pick on draft day.
