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.
