Summary:

Sacha Killeya-Jones is an athletic big man that was a prospect on a loaded Kentucky team for the 2017-18 season, before later transferring to NC State briefly before deciding to play overseas for BC Kalev-Cramo.

He didn’t get a whole lot of run on Kentucky, but NBA scouts and teams may be watching closely to see how much he develops this year, as he has played well in his role overseas. Right now, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2020 draft.
