Emanuel Cate is an energetic big man that largely scores on hustle plays around the basket, and he also can rebound the basketball.  He has been playing well in the Basketball Champions League and in the Spanish ACB League this year.​

He will need to significantly improve his skill set on offense, but his productivity and skill set for his position could potentially enable him to end up being a late second round pick in 2019.
