Ibou Dianko Badji is an athletic, energetic big man that projects to be a rim protector in the NBA. He has great size and shot blocking skills that allows him to excel as an interior defender, and he also is a fairly good rebounder. He will need to expand upon his skill set on offense, but his ability to rebound and defend could enable him to be a second round pick in 2022.
