Wani Swaka Lo Buluk is an athletic, energetic swingman that has won 3 titles in Australia’s top professional league, the NBL. He is a defensive specialist that managed to be a starter on an NBL championship team for the Sydney Kings during the 2021-22 season.
On the other hand, he also may be fairly limited offensively. He’s not a particularly good shooter, and he doesn’t take many shots. Sswaka Lo Buluk will need to be a much more reliable jump shooter, but his defensive skills, combined with his motor and intangibles could get him looks from NBA teams late in the 2023 draft.
