Deng Adel is an athletic swingman that can shoot and score the basketball. He has not received much draft buzz, and he will likely need to polish up his overall game, as he can be too inconsistent when he is on the floor.​

On the other hand, he may be quite underrated, as his ability to shoot, score on the break, and defensive potential could make him an intriguing prospect to NBA teams in 2018.
