Jo Lual-Acuil is an athletic big man that could be an interesting prospect for the 2018 NBA Draft. He is a high motor player that is a terrific shot blocker, as he has very good length, athleticism, and timing, and he also has shown improving offensive skills.
Not only can he score on hustle plays, but he has shown the willingness to shoot it from deep. He has not obtained much draft buzz, but he could be a player to keep an eye on as he could end up being a good fit for today’s modern NBA game, especially if he continues to progress as an overall player.
