Adem Bona is a physical freak who can run like a deer, finish lobs like a center, has a face-up game like a wing, and has the first step of a guard. He has great hands, finishes at an elite level, superb motor, and energy, and defends and rebounds like his life depends on it. On top of that, he can and does defend the rim at a high level, deflecting and/or blocking shots on a consistent basis. He needs to tighten his handle so he can play on the perimeter more, as well as adding some spot-up shooting ability. He is a raw prospect, but he has one of the highest finishing and defensive potentials in this class. Bona is a very unique prospect and one to keep an eye on as he develops.
