2024 Draft Profile - Donovan Clingan

Kevin O'Connor - The Ringer - June 17th: "Intimidating rim protector with a 7-foot-7 wingspan. He can block shots without even leaving his feet. Opponents avoid him when hes lurking near the paint, not just because hes imposing but also because he tends to be in the right position."

NBA Draft Room - June 16th: "Clingan flew up draft boards over the second half of the season and is being considered by all the teams at the top of the draft. He could the target of a trade-up and this seems like a likely spot."

Jonathan Givony - ESPN - June 7th: "Clingan's appeal is evident at 7-foot-3 with a 7-7 wingspan and 9-7 standing reach, and he's viewed by many as the draft's most impactful defensive prospect with the timing he shows as a rim-protector and the improvement he has made guarding the pick-and-roll."

Sam Vecenie - The Athletic - June 5th: "Using his enormous frame, Clingan shuts down the paint. He moves well for his size and is an elite drop coverage defender who stops ballhandlers from turning the corner on him and getting to the rim. His ability to backpedal on-balance is rare for his size."

Colin Ward-Henninger - CBS Sports - June 4th: "The polished UConn product will provide shot-blocking, screen-setting, rebounding and finishing from the second he sets foot on the floor."

Zach Buckley - Bleacher Report - June 4th: "Clingan's elite defensive potential and shooting prowess shown on the workout circuit could give him a higher ceiling in the long run."

Jonathan Wasserman - Bleacher Report - May 30th: "The hype around Clingan has ultimately grown, even after the NCAA tournament, with how easily he's shown he can shoot the three during workouts."
