Summary

Kijani Wright is a big, physical, and tenacious 6’9 PF who always seems to have the size and strength edge against his competition. Wright is ferocious on the glass, being one of the best rebounders in all of college basketball. His positioning, footwork, and desire are unmatched on the glass. He always has a physicality advantage, but it’s his passion and aggressiveness that really separates him. Wright is a very smart player with a high IQ and great hands in the paint. Don’t look for him to be shooting outside anytime soon, he is working on an outside shot, but he still has a way to go before it is reliable. Wright’s finishing/touch around the rim will improve over time as well. While not being the greatest athlete, Wright being able to outplay, outhustle, and outwork his opponents more than makes up for some of his athletic deficiencies.

Notes

UC All-American - Atlanta, GA - 3/31/2019


Nice running hook in the lane, soft touch around the basket crashes the boards, can step out and shoot the 3.
   

USA Basketball - Colorado Springs, CO - 7/26-28/2019

Nice frame, wide shoulders. Has good hands and feet. He can finish around the rim but struggles to score of length. Blocks shots and is tough on the boards.

USA Basketball - Colorado Springs, CO - 10/11-13/2019

A massive frame, wide shoulders, and big hands. He understands how to discard   defender in the lane and will finish over the top. He is a monster on the boards, seems to grab every shot that comes off the rim.
