PPG RPG APG

Team: Auburn TigersHeight: 6-8 Born: 8/18/1998
Class-Eligibility: So-SoWeight: 230 Hometown: Atlanta, GA


Scouting Report

OVERVIEW
Shooting is one of Okeke's assets and he was able to fire away as an Auburn sophomore. That enabled him to average 12 points per game, aided by 38.7 shooting on 3-pointers.
Auburn's offensive system allowed for lots of perimeter shooting and the Tigers had enough shooters to spread the floor. He'll be better defended on the professional level, a challenge he'll have to conquer while getting back on the positive side health-wise.
He suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in March's NCAA Tournament, so he won't be going through work in NBA summer leagues and might be out for the entire season.
He received kudos as a defender, but some of that was associated with Auburn's harassing defense. At 6-foot-8, he can move quite well and help teammates on the defensive side.
ANALYSIS
When healthy, mobility is a plus tool for Okeke and the fact that Auburn was often playing at a break-neck speed should have given scouts an indication of how this player might handle the NBA.
He'll be forced to be more than a shooter at the next level, so his ball-handling skills could be tested. His 6.8 rebounds per game as a sophomore shows he takes that seriously.
A team with immediate needs is going to have to pass on Okeke because of his injury. He turns 21 in August, so it's quite possible he won't be in an NBA uniform until he's 22.
Projection: Second round
