2021 Draft Profile - Usman Garuba

NBA Draft Room - Jan. 31st: "Garuba is known as a rock solid defender and rebounder with good offensive decision making. Hes starting to hit the 3-ball, which could catapult him into the top 10."

James Ham - NBC Sports - Jan. 25th: "With a 7-foot-2 wingspan, he looks like a clone of Luc Mbah a Moute. In the modern NBA, hes likely a combo forward or maybe a stretch four prospect."

- Jeremy Woo - Jan 20: "He has a chance to be a legitimately special piece on that end, with a 7 2 wingspan that covers for his height, a developed frame for his age, good balance and mobility and a level of physical toughness. He can slide in space effectively and stay with smaller players."

Jonathan Wasserman - Bleacher Report - Jan. 14th: "Despite limited scoring production, Garuba's defensive IQ, passing and unique Euroleague experience (since 17 years old) should draw first-round interest."

NBA Draft Room - October: "Garuba is a powerful player who already has an NBA frame. Projects as a great rebounder and a multi-dimensional defender with a chance to develop into a solid offensive player as well."

Kevin Flaherty - 247 Sports - Sept. 14th: "The Spanish center is a bit undersized at 6-foot-8 and 230 pounds, but his 7-2 wingspan helps, and he's a fluid athlete with defensive versatility and a monstrous rebounder. He can finish above the rim but needs to continue to work to develop his shot."

Bryan Kalbrosky - The Rookie Wire - Sept. 1st: "Usman Garuba led Spain to the gold medal at the U18 tournament in 2019. His points (15.6 ppg), rebounds (12.9 rpg) and blocks (2.1 bpg) were all exciting marks for NBA scouts. He boasted the second-best defensive rating (70.0) and third-best player efficiency rating (33.3) among all participants."

Kyle Boone - CBS Sports - June 4th: "The 18-year-old Spaniard is active on both ends of the floor and displays a high level of feel for the game with anticipation and energy to affect every facet of the game."
