Professional Team: Brose Baskets Bamberg

Classification: International ’98

Pros:

Excels at scoring on the move

Decent scorer off the dribble

Decent low post scorer

Decent shooter off the catch

Good free throw shooter

Handles the ball well for his size

Good athlete

Good motor

Cons:

Needs to improve his outside shot

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.

While he has been getting consistent playing time in Germany’s second league, the Pro A, he has not played much in the Euroleague or in the BBL.  Olinde will need to improve his skill set offensively and find a skill that he can hang his hat on, but he could perhaps be a second round pick if he has a strong season in 2020.
