I was right about this one. I kinda see why as well. Mark T recruits players with shooting touch, athleticism and size who play with a good feel for the flow of the game.
I like what Ruzious said like usual but doordoor123 has been spot on to me. Even from his time in SL, I seen exactly what he said. He gets abused by stronger guys, he struggles with boxing out, and rebounding outside of range in general. He rebounds when it's directly at him. Those Dwight Howard as an older player boards.
I do like the Harrell comparisons to a degree especially once he gets stronger but I don't think he is going to be that good at scoring off of PnR's like Harrell is. Maybe he does in time. It's possible of course.
That said, Bruno passing for his position is ++. His defensive communication is ++.His defensive talent is +. He is really fast, especially in spurts. His ability to get his hands on the ball on defense is nice. His defense translates Day 1. He has nice skill on the ball with good footwork. He has a nice shooting touch as well. But all in all. Too weak at this level and doesn't have the freak athletic ability to overcome it at this stage. He is going to be a good NBA center one day but for now, he is a developmental big. G-League bound.
By too weak, Bruno is strong strength in positioning, hard to move off but in movement, he's weak and loses balance fairly quick. I see exactly what doordoor mean. It's gonna take sometime.
