LIVE SCOUTING NOTES

 

November 6, 2021 vs ASVEL

Extremely active rolling to the rim...Has been all over the floor and full of energy..Dominating the ASVEL front line with his physicality and energy..

Drew 2 fouls on Wembanyama, too strong and physical for Victor.. Definitely looks like the better prospect of the two tonight and winning this matchup early.. Just plays hard, he's sprinting the floor on every opportunity.. Drawing fouls but leaving points on the board with missed FTs.. Some of his fouls could be And 1's but he brings ball down below his waist.. Has a nose for the ball, he finds gaps in the defense and always puts himself in position to receive dump offs or lobs.. He's made a couple nice passes and reads late in the game. Has good interior passing chemistry with Kyle O'Quinn....I have some concerns about his hands. He seems to bobble or drop a pass to two per game.
