Cavs Draft Okoro In First Round

With the 5th overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft the Cleveland Cavaliers selected Auburn small forward Isaac Okoro.

A one and done kid, the 6’6-225 pound Okoro is known first for his defense. Tigers head coach Bruce Pearl said he believes Okoro can guard any position 1 through 5.

His scouting report says he’s an athletic, physical wing player, with a decent handle, can pass, has a high basketball IQ, but must improve his outside shot and become a better scorer. Only connected on 29% from 3-point range in college and 67% from the free throw line.

Averaged 12.9 points per game and 4.4 rebounds per game in his only season at Auburn.
