Summary:

Henri Drell is an athletic combo forward that recently played in the Italian League this year.  He was a rotation player on a 1-20 Pesaro team, but he really struggled to make shots and he also posted a PER that was in single digits this season.  Surprisingly though, he still decided to declare to enter the NBA draft.  He did not play very well and he is a player that has no major strengths in his game, so he is likely a long shot to be drafted.  He’ll likely need to spend at least a year or two to polish up his game, as he is not ready to make the jump to the NBA.
