Some strengths of draft prospect Isaiah Stewart

Here’s NBC Sports Washington listing some strengths of 2020 NBA draft prospect Isaiah Stewart, a 6-foot-9, 250-pound forward originally form Rochester, New York who averaged 17.0 points and 8.8 rebounds shooting 57% FG in one season for the Washington Huskies:

One of the strongest built players in this draft class, Stewart is a bruiser on the boards and on the block. He was a force in college, bullying his way to the rim with little resistance. His game is currently best-suited for the interior, as he lacks an outside shot. But he has been effective at every level of basketball so far playing that style, and his high motor will help his chances in the NBA.

Stewart is one of the best rebounders in this class, averaging 8.8 per game including 2.8 on the offensive end. He was a bit inconsistent in that area, however. Seven times he grabbed five or fewer rebounds in a game, while 10 times he had 11 or more. He had 19 boards in a game against Oregon in January.

The draft is scheduled for June 25, but the date is very subject to change due to the coronavirus pandemic.
