Devontae Cacok is an undersized power forward that has been very productive for UNC Wilmington throughout his collegiate career. He has been excelling as an efficient inside scorer and rebounder for them.
But it’s unclear if his game will translate well to the NBA, as he is undersized to play inside, and he will need to expand upon his perimeter skills to be a more versatile player. Still, his strong production will likely help him earn a Portsmouth invite, and Cacok could potentially end up making an NBA team’s roster.
