I think he compares to them, Kuz and Horford.
He has the movement skills of Collins but Collins is quicker and faster on a beeline. Both have elite hands. Collins is a more aggressive screener and scorer at this time. Collins might be the best at reading the PnR I've seen and Toppin is still WIP in that area but it takes time, NBA trains for that skill a lot more than college.
He has the quickness with the ball of Amar'e and insane explosiveness as well. I think his scoring could be due to a major leap in the NBA. Especially in year 2.
His comfort with the rock on the perimeter reminds you of Kuz as a prospect but his decision making and passing talent reminds you of Horford.
Offensively, there is no better player in this draft but maybe Ball could be more productive stat-wise.
