Kouat Noi is an athletic combo forward that was an early entrant for the 2019 NBA Draft, before later withdrawing from the draft. If he ends up making an NBA team’s roster, he would project into a 3 and D type of role in the association. Most likely, he would wind up going undrafted, as he may need to spend at least a year or two in the G-League or overseas to hone his game before he ends up making his way into the NBA.
