Summary:

Neemias Queta is an athletic big man that could project to be a rim protector in the NBA.  He is a very good rebounder and shot blocker, and he may have the physical tools to develop into a solid defender at the next level.​

He was an efficient scorer that showed some ability to score off the dribble as well as knock down some mid-range shots.  He will need to show that he can consistently play well against top competition, but right now, Queta projects to be a potential first round prospect for the 2020 draft.
