Simi Shittu is an athletic combo forward that will take the ball to the basket to garner scores, and he also can collect many rebounds and steals for his team.

However, he will still need to improve his jump shot and ball handling ability, and some have questioned his feel for the game.  He has had some good games, but his team has been very disappointing ever since Darius Garland went down to a season ending injury, but Simi Shittu may have the talent to be a second round pick in 2019.
