Pros:

Excels at scoring on the move
Decent low post scorer
Adequate scorer off the dribble
Good free throw shooter
Handles the ball well for his size
Solid rebounder
Decent defender
Good athlete
Good motor

Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
Struggles to score in traffic
Needs to improve his passing ability
Can play too wildly on offense
Struggles to defend stronger players
Can be foul prone
Needs to add strength

Summary:

Louis Olinde is an athletic, skilled combo forward that can score in a variety of ways, and he can primarily get buckets on off-ball motion type of plays.  He has the size, length, and athleticism to put a plus-level defender.

Olinde was able to significant playing time in Germany’s top league, the German BBL as well as in the Basketball Champions League, but he struggled to make shots efficiently this season.  Olinde will need to improve his skill set offensively and find a definitive skill that he can hang his hat on, but his size, ball handling ability, and defensive potential could perhaps enable him to end up being a second round pick in 2020.
