Miye Oni 

Post#1 » by King Ken » Mon Jan 7, 2019 3:22 am

One of my favorite developmental prospects in this class. 6'6 210, Junior has a tremendous feel for scoring and defending. He isn't polished from a skill standpoint. But he has a tremendous NBA frame with great 6'11 wingspan, he showed tremendous quality v. Duke, Miami and other teams this season. For me he is a very raw but a good potential NBA prospect. Not a NBA level shooter at this point while he does have a nice shooting form with good quick release, he just lacks the accuracy at this stage. He is shooting 39% from 3 and his FG% is 46% but I am not sold on the 3 point range for the NBA for now:

I think he is a the Josh Richardson of this class in terms of undervalued high ceiling wing but if you asked me for a NBA long term comparison, I will say DeAndre Bembry. Not as skilled as Bembry or as strong as a prospect but more functional athletic ability and more of a projectable frame. At this moment, he is more of a G-League level prospect. Like Josh Okogie, I do not feel he has played a lot of high level Basketball before college. I think he has a lot more potential within him. He has one of the highest ceilings of my 2nd round grades even if his floor is not as high.

I love Miye Oni, think he’s a sleeper. Maybe the 4th best shooting guard prospect behind the usual suspects, Barrett, Culver and Porter. He does everything well.
