Onuaku, Chinanu Louisville 6'10" 230 C soph. At the conclusion of the 2016 NBA Draft Combine, Onuaku had a procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue (WPW syndrome). My understanding is that his heart is not a major issue going forward. If you believe that - then Onuaku is an interesting prospect. He is a 6'10" banger that can rebound at a high rate. ...Onuaku gained some notoriety by shooting his free throws under-handed (Rick Barry style). ...Onuaku struggles with his face-up shooting. He is a poor free throw shooter (54.7% FT - career). He has more turnovers than assists. Onuaku has a standing reach of 9'0.5" (same as Tristan Thompson). Onuaku's max. vert. is 33.5" (same as Patrick Patterson). Chinanu's brother Arinze Onuaku played for Syracuse from 2005-10 and opened this season on the New Orleans Pelicans roster. ...While Chinanu Onuaku was very efficient this season in the ACC, the current landscape for traditional BIGs is shrinking dramatically. I think you can find similar athletes with more skill.
