Really, really good. Per Adrian Wojnarowski, a “respected NBA executive of 20-plus years (told Wojnarowski) that Chicago’s Jahlil Okafor is the most skilled high school center that he’s ever scouted.”
Not only is that incredibly high praise, but given that it’s being reported by (arguably) the NBA’s most well-connected and reliable writer, it’s a statement to be taken more seriously than your average hyperbolic twitter blast. And, just to jog your memory– the list of players that exec would have seen most likely includes Dwight Howard, Andrew Bynum, Greg Oden, and Tim Duncan, among others. High praise, indeed.
Okafor is currently down at the Peach Jam along with Coach Cal, Kenny Payne, Orlando Antigua, and a bunch of other coaches who can’t pull off Tommy Bahama like Cal can.
