Youssoupha is a true center prospect that could project to be a rim protector in the NBA. He can finish plays around the basket, rebound, and block shots, but he will need to show that he can excel against upper echelon athletes when he is on the floor.
In a favorable scenario, he could end up perhaps being a similar player to Detroit Pistons’ center Boban Marjanovic, as Fall could be a potential second round pick in 2017.
