Summary:

Henri Drell is an athletic combo forward that recently played in the Italian League this year.  After really struggling in the Italian League during the 2019-20 season, he briefly entered the draft before withdrawing.

This year, he’s playing much better on Pesaro.  He’s played well in his role on his team, and he is a tall shooter that can score the basketball in a variety of ways.  He will need to improve his defense and show that he can consistently play well, but he currently projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2022 draft.
