roxPower Forward/Center: 6’10, 245 lbs; 2nd year, Louisville

 NBA Role: (raw) forward prospect • UnderDOG

Louisville’s Chinanu Onuaku is raw but promising – he fits right in w/ Houston’s other young bigs!; heavily slept on during the 2016 Draft – fell to Round 2 – though Onuaku is in a great situation to earn immediate action (under Mike D’Antoni); good athlete who runs the floor – not the best ‘non-lob’ finisher yet but Onuaku does a nice job of getting himself open; undisciplined, yet skilled defender – will send shots back but has a habit of fouling too often; poor free throw shooter (SHOOTS UNDERHAND), similar to Clint Capela – lacks an outside game, similar to Montrezl Harrell; candidate for minutes in 2017-18?

Signature Shot: TBD.
