Standing at 6’6”, Okoro is a perfect fit for the small forward position. He’s a tremendous finisher at the rim and can take hits while attempting to do so. Okoro weighs 225 pounds and uses his strengths to the maximum extent while on the basketball court.

Okoro is one of the youngster prospects in the 2020 draft class, but one can’t really undermine his talent. He has a lot of tricks up his sleeve, and explosive finishing is one of them. The 19-year-old doesn’t need the ball often to create an impact and is one of the more promising players in the Cavs young setup.
