Yannis Morin is another player who seems to have benefited from the experience he gained playing at the NIJT in Belgrade. He had a much steadier showing here in Paris, flashing sparks of potential along the way.
His main intrigue revolves around his physical tools. He's a long, athletic 6-9 big man with a frame that should fill out in time. He runs the floor well, and he can get off the ground to challenge shots and crash the offensive glass. He also plays with energy, which is always a good sign.
Offensively, Morin is a pretty raw player, but he does show some skills in the post--mainly in the form of a jump hook and developing footwork. Most of his points come in transition and finishing around the basket, where his physical tools serve him well at this level. He's a solid shot blocker and offensive rebounder, but he tends to tire out pretty quickly.
Morin needs to continue to add strength to his body and work on his all-around game. He lacks significant experience and is not blessed with an outstanding basketball IQ.
Considering he's only 16, he's a player to keep an eye on for the future.
