Omari Spellman is a smart, skilled big man that excels at knocking down jumpers, and he also can score from the post. He is also a good rebounder that will crash the glass on both ends of the floor.
However, he may need to improve his conditioning, as he may struggle against longer, more athletic players in games. But still, Spellman has an interesting collection of skills that could enable him to thrive as an effective role player in the NBA.
