Mohamed Bamba), born on May 12, 1998 in New York, USA, is an American professional basketball player who serves as a center forward.
Location: C (No. 11)
Height: 2.13 meters / 7 feet 0
Weight: 105 kg/231 lbs
Team: Orlando Magic
School: University of Texas
Draft: No. 6 in the first round of 2018
Salary this season: $5.97 million
In college, he studied at the University of Texas (2017-18 season) and represented the University of Texas in the NCAA league. He averaged 12.9 points, 10.5 rebounds and 3.7 blocks per game.
The 6th pick in the first round of the 2018 NBA draft was selected by the Orlando Magic, starting the first stop of his NBA career. Bamba has incredible physical hardware, but he has a fatal flaw. His weight is only up to the standard of a small forward, which is not enough at all. Fight against the major centers in the league. Secondly, the problem brought about by the explosive talent is that in the case of rough skills (2019-20 season) for 14.5 minutes, he can only contribute 5.5 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.4 blocks. The embarrassing data is far from meeting the expectations of the outside world. The growth period of a center is long. He must gain weight and exercise strength to adapt to every confrontation. He must also develop stable offensive skills. Whether it is back body, face frame or basket, he must grasp every end of his hand Chances are, of course, this takes a lot of time. Hope that the training of the season can make Bamba a dominant center!
