Oscar Da Silva is a German-born, combo forward that has a wide array of skills on offense, and he also is an active help defender that enables him to get steals and blocks in games.
He is an efficient inside scorer that can do so on hustle plays, and he also may have plus-level skills in the other facets of the game. Da Silva will likely need to improve his outside shooting and he will also need to be more assertive on offense. Right now, he projects to be a second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
