Out of Oregon state, the 7-feet-2 piece of art is the longest player to be drafted this year. To add some spice to his NBA welcome, the 19-year-old made more than half of his three-point attempts(52%) and shot 57% from the floor before his brief college season came to a close due to a non-displaced fracture of the navicular bone in his left foot.

Bol Bol's wide ranging abilities has the NBA scouts(like everyone else) in splits.

“Be careful. Everybody is lying about Bol Bol,” one team executive told David Gardner of Bleacher Report. “Every team thinks they have him figured out. The ones who like him a lot are spreading negative rumours about him, and the ones who don’t want to draft him are propping him up.”
"His resting demeanour makes him look aloof, like he might rather be sitting on the couch," says one NBA scout. "I don't really think that's his fault. He's not that different from most guys his age. He's not a vocal leader, but he's also not a bad egg. More than most, it'll depend on what kind of team drafts him. If they have a great culture, I think he'll really excel."

According to ESPN, he was ranked the third-best shot-blocker among likely draft picks and is projected to picked 15th in the upcoming draft in June.
