Reggie Lynch is an athletic big man that may project into a defensive specialist role in the NBA. He is a gifted shot blocker that can protect the paint defensively, but he may need to improve in most of the other aspects of the game considerably.
Before, Lynch was a borderline second round prospect that had been leading Minnesota to a pleasantly solid season this year. However, he ended up getting suspended in early January due to sexual assault allegations, and Minnesota has really struggled since, as they are without their best interior defender.
Right now, Lynch is unlikely to be drafted, but he could perhaps resurface on NBA team’s radars sometime down the road if he can put this behind him for good.
