David Okwera is a very athletic, high-motor center that can score in the paint, and he also handles the ball fairly well for a player his size. He hasn’t played much in the NBL, but he played very well in his team’s NBL regular season opener, as he scored 10 points off the bench in his team’s loss to Sydney. It’ll be interesting to see how he plays this season, but he could project to be a solid rotational big man in the NBA.
