Moussa Cisse is an athletic, energetic big man that may project to be an elite rim protector in the NBA. He is a very good rebounder, and he is also a tremendous shot blocker that excels at protecting the paint to help get his team stops defensively. On offense, he can finish numerous plays above the rim and can score in the post, but he will need to improve his ability to score on jump shots from further out and he will have to cut down on his turnovers. Currently, he could be a solid value pick for an NBA team in the first round of the 2021 draft.
