@coords The next 5 players in my mock after the Kings pick are all big men. I just think at that juncture in the first, that all the best players available are big men. If Jaylen Brown falls to them, I believe he is the pick. I think Ellenson fits the best out of all those big men, and gives the Kings a stretch big that they lack.
Improved free throw shooter which will be at important at the next level due to his slashing ability
Very active on the glass
Length makes him an effective defender
Good strength ready for the next level
Poor outside shooter
Plays a little out of control at times especially in one-on-one situations
Can be a much stronger finisher at the rim rather trying to make the fancy acrobatic-like shot
Needs to sharpen up his defensive skills
Too often finds himself in foul trouble
Summary: Aminu is a well-rounded small forward who has yet to come close in reaching his full potential as a basketball player. For a player his with his size and strength, his all-around skill set is outstanding. Many people were surprised he chose to return to school after his freshman year as he almost certainly would have been a lottery pick which he will certainly be this year.
Player Comparison: Marvin Williams. Like Williams, Aminu is a very talented player especially on the offensive end. Williams has been unable to live up to expectations and put it all together and that will be an issue for Aminu who has been a high prospect since arriving at Wake.
