KYRSTEN PEEK: Precious Achiuwa is the most athletic player in this draft class. He spent one year at Memphis, and became the number one option in the offense once James Wiseman left the team. The six foot nine forward averaged 15.8 points and 10.8 rebounds this season. He's a freak of an athlete and a great playmaker when he gets the ball in the lane.

Achiuwa led the American conference in rebounds, and improved on his shot selection. His three point shots still need some work. And he's shown some cases of being turnover from the season.

Achiuwa's style of play is very similar to Bam Adebayo due to his explosiveness and tough finishes around the rim. Achiuwa has long been projected as a lottery pick. And I see him going anywhere from number 9 to number 15.
