Jericho Sims is a very athletic big man that could project to be a defensive specialist in the NBA. He is a high-energy player that can score on rolls, put backs, in transition, and he can finish plays around the basket. He also is a solid interior defender, and he is also a good shot blocker.
However, he will need to improve upon his skill set offensively, and he does not take enough shots on offense. Right now, he is a borderline second round candidate for the 2021 draft.
