Jaime Echenique is a strong, physical big man that may project to be a defensive specialist in the NBA. He is a high-motor player that excels at blocking shots and playing interior defense to get stops for his team.
After having finished playing college ball for Wichita State in 2020, he has since joined Delteco GBC for the 2020-21 season, and is currently playing well in the Spanish ACB League. Echenique will need to continue to improve his jump shot and ball handling skills, but his ability to defend and anchor the paint could potentially allow him to be a late second round pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
