Moses Kingsley is an athletic big man that projects to be a defensive specialist in the NBA. He is a very good rebounder and shot blocker that excels as a rim protector for his team. Offensively though, he may be far from being polished on that end, but he can ably score on hustle plays.
Right now, he projects to be a second round prospect for the upcoming draft. His excellent shot blocking skills and vast athletic ability could intrigue NBA teams, but he will need to improve offensively to improve his chances of having a long, productive career in the association.
