2019 Draft Prospects: Daniel Gafford

A couple players to think about when assessing Daniel Gafford’s skills are Marcus Camby and JaVale McGee, two long, athletic and bouncy big men in their prime. The 6-foot-11, 234-pounder, who was named to the All-Sec First Team this past season while starring at Arkansas, is very agile and mobile. He runs the floor extremely well and has the potential to be a dunk machine in the NBA.

Arguably his best trait is converting on putbacks, as he’s excellent at correctly predicting where the ball will be when it trickles off the rim. Where he’s blossomed the most over the last year is in his post-up offense.
