5. Bol Bol
There is no debate that outside of projected No. 1 overall pick, Zion Williamson, Bol Bol is the most intriguing physical prospect in the 2019 NBA Draft. As the son of former NBA giant, Manute Bol, this 7’2″ beast has a skill-set far different from the big men that came before him.
With insane length and height, Bol is obviously a talented shot-blocker. In his freshman season for Oregon, Bol averaged 2.7 blocks a game as he was a tree in the lane. Of course, his height also helped him be a strong rebounder, hauling in 9.6 rebounds a night.
What makes Bol such an interesting prospect is the flashes of guard skills he displayed in his first collegiate season. Yes, this seven-footer had moments in which he put the ball on the floor and knocked down shots from 3-point range. Shooting 52.5 percent on 2.8 attempts from deep per game, Bol is a frightening prospect.
Sadly, with a player this tall comes worries of health concerns. It isn’t natural for a seven-footer to move the way he does and it has already resulted in a few injuries. Many scouts believe he appears to be unmotivated on the court as well. Bol Bol’s physical attributes make him an attractive prospect, but the Cleveland Cavaliers should remain cautious.
