Elijah Minnie is a tall, skilled combo forward that can do a little bit of everything. He is a fairly good shooter that can make shots from all over the floor, and he also is a rangy defender that can collect many steals and blocks. He had a very good junior season for Eastern Michigan, and he could project to be a sleeper prospect that may end up being a good find for an NBA team in the future.
