Summary:

Simon Birgander is a tall, mobile big man that could project to be a rim protector in the NBA.  He is a very good rebounder that can block shots, and he can also finish plays around the basket.​

However, he has not seen much playing time in the LEB Gold, which is a second division league in Spain, and so far he has not seen playing time in the ACB, Euroleague, or in the Eurocup to date.  But if he stays in the draft, he could perhaps go late in the second round as a draft and stash pick this year.
