Philipp Herkenhoff is a tall, skilled sharpshooting stretch big that is having a very good season this year in Germany’s top league, the BBL, otherwise known as the Basketball Bundesliga. He will need to improve his rebounding and defense, but his strong ability to knock down shots, particularly from beyond the arc could enable him to project into a shooting specialist role in the NBA.
