Fanbo Zeng is an athletic, skilled combo forward that has a variety of skills that could prove to be useful in the NBA.  He is a tall, agile playmaker that can also knock down outside shots from beyond the arc.  Zeng is also a very good shot blocker that can swat shots to help his team protect the paint.  He will need to be a more consistent shooter and tighten up his handle, and he will need to add strength to be able to match up to stronger opponents better.  He is an intriguing long-term prospect, and he currently projects to go in the second round range in the 2022 draft.
