Isaiah Stewart is a strong, mobile big man that could go in the mid to late first round in the upcoming draft.  He is a tremendous finisher around the basket, as he can score on numerous cuts as well as in transition, and he also operates well out of the post.  He also is a solid screen setter and rebounder, and he also is a good shot blocker that can defend in the post and will actively contest shots in the paint.

On the downside, he will need to improve his playmaking skills and expand upon his shooting range, and he can struggle to guard players out on the perimeter, but his ability to score and rebound could allow him to be a first round pick in 2020.
