2019 Draft Prospects: Bruno Fernando

The best alley-oop target in this draft is Bruno Fernando, who some have compared to Alonzo Mourning and a less polished version of Deandre Ayton. Bam Adebayo is another player he resembles on the court. Nobody is more ferocious in this draft class when going up for a slam than the native of Luanda, Angola, who plays with incredible force and passion.

Fernando’s body is NBA-ready, as he possesses the size and strength necessary to contribute right away. He is extremely athletically gifted, as he showed at Maryland that he can out-run opposing big men in transition. His footwork has come along, too, as he has a few nifty lost-post moves.
