Ismael Bako is an athletic 6-10 big man that has been one of the standouts at the 2017 Adidas Reebok Eurocamp.  He just now has been receiving some draft buzz.  While he may be a long shot to be selected this year, Bako’s size, athleticism, motor, and potential to be a defensive specialist in the NBA could give him a shot to be picked late in this year’s draft.
