Default Re: 14 Year Old 7 Foot Georgios Papagiannis: "2016 NBA Draft #1 Pick"

I think his upside quite frankly is a top five, one-and-done, 2016 pick,” Westtown (Pa.) coach Seth Berger told of the 7-foot-1 native of Amarousio, Greece.

Papagiannis’ father played professionally in Greece, so he has good genes. He’s currently averaging about 15 points and 9 rebounds for Westtown, which plays this weekend in the Under Armour Holiday Classic in San Diego.

“He’s a really unique player,” Berger said. “He’s 7-1, 250 pounds. Incredibly coordinated. Jumps well, shoots well, dribbles well, passes well, has really good post work and he just turned 16 in July.”

Berger added: “Usually kids this size, this young, can’t run up and down the court. Forget he catches alley-oops and can reverse them. He’s got a super-high basketball IQ, incredibly motivated. And he’s really smart.
