Summary:

Izan Almansa is a strong, athletic big man that excels at making hustle plays to help his team on both ends of the floor. He also is a good passer for his size, and he also can handle the basketball. He’ll need to expand his skill set offensively and be a more disciplined defender in games, but Almansa could end up being a first round pick in the 2024 draft.
