Darius Bazley is an athletic, combo forward that may have a variety of skills on both ends of the floor. Currently, he projects to be a high-energy defensive specialist that could be an excellent rebounder.
He will need to continue to develop his skill set on offense. Recently, he has decided to not play in the G-League to focus on training for the 2019 NBA Draft, and he has missed a full season of basketball, but his talent and upside could perhaps allow him to be a first round pick on draft day.
