Covington's defensive tools have been great. Nwora has been a terrible defender with little effort.
DraftExpress questioned Covington's defense, though they did say he possessed the size and versatility.
"he lacks the lateral quickness to stay in front of quicker guards"
"he inexplicably struggles to close out on perimeter shooters"
"Covington is significantly less effective in the post, where he struggles to stay with bigger, stronger, and quicker players"
"he remains a mediocre rebounder"
"he spends a lot of his time on the perimeter on the defensive end, but nevertheless, rarely shows the discipline, focus, toughness and fundamentals displayed by elite rebounders"
"His lack of fundamentals on the defensive end...are legitimate red flags when projecting him at the next level."
