Ethan Happ is a skilled big man that had a solid senior season for Wisconsin this year.   He is a good offensive player that can score in the post as well as off of hustle plays, and he is also a skilled passer that sees the floor well.  Plus, he is also a good rebounder that will frequently crash the glass.​

However, he plays on a slow paced team, as he may struggle to adjust to the tempo when he gets to the next level.  Also, he will need to extend his shooting range and improve his jump shot significantly to diversify his offensive game.​

But still, Happ is a smart, productive player that brings great energy to the table, and he could end up going in the second round range in 2019.
