Bol Bol, F/C - Denver Nuggets
I might be too high on Bol Bol, but I fully believe if he were to be given a chance anywhere in the league and stay healthy, he could be a very good starter and maybe a fringe All-Star.
College stats don’t matter too much in the NBA, but in his nine games in college, he averaged nine and a half rebounds and 21 points on well over 50% shooting from inside and outside the arc. At Oregon, he played 268 minutes in nine games. In Denver, he’s played in 49 games but amassed only 294 minutes. However, his per 36-minute stats suggest he can be a two-way player who puts up impressive double-doubles.
Bol Bol is seven foot two inches, which would make him by far the tallest Spur since Boban Marjanovic. That being said, he is more of a forward than center with his slender frame, court vision, shooting abilities, and playmaking. If he were to develop in the Spurs' system, he could start alongside a more conventional center or provide unfair mismatches and floor spacing off the bench.
Bol Bol is a restricted free agent but the Nuggets seem done with their experiment. He could start anew in the Silver and Black, and with the best coaching staff in the league, the Spurs could turn him into one of the best unconventional players in the league. With an asking price of only $2 million at most, it’s worth rolling the dice.
