OG Anunoby-SF/PF-Indiana
Size: 6’8 215lbsOG Anunoby

Strengths:

  • Wingspan
  • Defensive potential
  • NBA-ready frame
  • Disruptive defender
  • Great rebounder
  • Decent shooting touch

Analysis: OG Anunoby has great size and length, specifically his excellent wingspan (7’2.5”). He has a NBA-ready frame with surprising lateral speed for a player with as much muscle mass as he shows. Defense is his calling card. He has already showed the signs of being a high-level defender, guarding multiple positions on the court. His length could allow him to develop into a small-ball big in the future. Light on his feet on the perimeter, disruptive defender, jumps passing lanes whenever he sees the opportunity. Was an interior presence defensively, especially as the weak side defender and is able to stay on the floor and block shots as a perimeter defender due to excellent reach. Possesses nice defensive instincts, closes out well and under control on shooters. His shot has a nice rotation and backspin on it, hits the rim softly–Will make open or uncontested threes. Sees and makes the extra pass, monster on the offensive boards. Can keep possessions alive with rebounds and will convert second-chance opportunities into baskets. Very good cutter off the ball— good at cutting back door as well. Looks for defender to turn head and then makes his baseline move to the lane … Ally oop threat, likely to make plenty of highlight plays on lob passes. His offensive numbers are misleading as he actually has very good potential as a shooter, if he can hone his ability in using deception to create looks.

Weaknesses:

  • Not much of an offensive game
  • Shot mechanics
  • Handle
  • Mediocre passer
  • Late-bloomer, basketball IQ needs improvement
  • Post skills raw
  • Recovering from torn ACL

Analysis: OG Anunoby is still a raw prospect, more so on the offensive end of the floor. He never had a defined offensive role while at Indiana, getting most of his baskets on put-backs, rebounds or alley-oops with the occasional open jump shot. Needs to work on his ability to create shots. Shot mechanics need some fine tuning as he has a bit of a slow release and seems to telegraph his shot too often. His motion gets sped up if a defender is too close to him. Shoots with minimal arc and not much rotation. Only shot 52 percent from the free throw line  and he is not a strong ball handler, dribbles high and away from body. Can be very loose with the ball, especially with his off-hand, failing to create his own offense. Won’t be an instant facilitator at the next level. Has trouble recognizing the open player as a playmaker. Post skills are extremely raw and in need of refinement. While he shows solid attributes and potential as a rebounder, remains extremely unproven having averaged 2.6 and 5.4 rebounds per game over his FR and SO seasons. Anunoby is recovering from a torn ACL suffered in late January, which could cloud his draft stock.
