Muhammad is a lottery pick. He’s young, and he’s a long way from being a finished product, but he’s got an arsenal of offensive skills that will translate to the NBA and earn him a key role as one of his team’s primary scoring options. In order to become an elite player, he’ll have to develop skills that don’t involve scoring.
What Insiders Say
Former UCLA coach Ben Howland
“I think the thing that makes him who he is is how competitive he is. That’s what makes the great ones great. They want to do everything they can to make their team win.”
What Outsiders Say
NBA Eastern Conference executive
"He knows how to score, because of his ability to create space for himself. He's powerful. But I don't think he's as athletic as [Georgetown’s Otto] Porter. I think one of his biggest advantages is he's left handed, but he overpowers people with his size and his strength. He doesn't blow by people and he doesn't jump over people."
