Pros:

Decent scorer off the dribble
Can post up smaller players
Excels at scoring on the move
Decent playmaker
Good rebounder for his size
Fairly good defender that can get steals
Solid athlete

Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
Only an average free throw shooter
Can be too reluctant to take jumpers
Can struggle to score in traffic
Unselfish to a fault
Can be turnover prone

Summary:

Isaac Likekele is an athletic, energetic playmaker that could project to be a solid role player in the NBA.  He runs the floor well, as he can get numerous scores off of cuts and in transition, and he also is a good passer that can rack up assists.  Plus, he also is a rangy defender that can guard either backcourt position.  He will need to significantly improve his jump shot and be more assertive on offense.  Recently, he announced his decision to transfer to Ohio State.  Right now, he is a borderline second round candidate for the 2023 draft.
