Good athlete
Great size to play multiple positions

Summary:

Isaac Bonga is a tall, point forward that plays very unselfishly, and his skill set and potential to develop as a player could make him a candidate to be a first round pick in 2018.

He will really need to work on his jump shot, and he will likely have to prove that he can excel against tougher competition at higher levels.  Still, Bonga may be an intriguing talent, as he could be a definite player to watch this year.
