Will Bol Bol Play a Part in The Restart?
Currently, on a two-way deal with Denver’s G-League team, Bol Bol had the opportunity to showcase his talent in a scrimmage against Washington earlier this week. The 7-2 forward was a pleasant surprise, scoring 16 points, grabbing ten boards, and blocking six shots.
What also impressed was Bol’s ability to shoot the three, pulling up and hitting a couple of long-range attempts in that win over the Wizards. Then on Saturday, the former Oregon star dropped another 15 points in a loss to the Pelicans.
For his size, Bol moves around extremely well on the court. He doesn’t look awkward with his movements, possessing solid athleticism for a guy who’s over seven feet. Although he’s shot just 26 percent from the three-point line through two games, it’s refreshing to know that Bol isn’t afraid to take shots from downtown as we’re in an era where the three-point shot is used more than ever.
With a 7-6 wingspan, the 20-year old is a force to be reckoned with in the paint, both offensively and defensively. His ridiculous length allows him to soar over opponents and finish while also blocking shots at a very high rate.
Bol has yet to play for the Nuggets in an NBA game, but after these performances, you would think Mike Milone would have him on the bench when league play resumes next week. Bol has enormous potential, proving already that he can compete in this league. Whether he features in the NBA restart or not, the Nuggets front office and supporters should be excited for the future with a player like Bol ready to contribute.
