Jordan Nwora is a skilled forward that can shoot and score the basketball. He has been averaging roughly 17 points and about 7 1/2 rebounds per game, but his draft stock may be all over the place. He also had 23 points and 12 rebounds in his team’s loss to Duke, and has helped lead Louisville to a 7 seed in the 2019 NCAA Tournament.
Nwora’s ability to knock down shots has helped him gain some draft stock, but after testing the waters, he’s decided to return to Louisville. Currently, he projects to go in the late first to the second round range for the 2020 draft.
