*DISCLAIMER: The following is a summary of prospect analyses from various media outlets and does not reflect the views of the Washington Wizards.*

Strengths: A top defender in this draft, Okoro can guard ‘1’ through ‘4’ and will be playable right away because of his defense. Okoro’s a smart player who makes the right play and is unselfish on the court. He plays to his strengths and doesn’t second guess his decision-making on the floor.

Weaknesses: His offensive game has the most room to grow. He only shot 28.6% from 3-point and 67.2% from the free throw line in his freshman season, but his mechanics and inconsistencies are fixable. Okoro is not the quickest, but he makes up for it with his physicality.

Quotes (from interview with Forbes)

On improving his shooting: “I’ve been working on that, I’ve also just been working on all aspects of my game. Just trying to polish everything up. In the NBA, you have to polish all aspects of your game, so I’ve been working on shooting, ball-handling, just every aspect of my game.”

Notes: Okoro’s parents are both from Nigeria.
