One, if not the best rebounder in high school this season Huge frame which he uses to his advantage in the paint Very aggressive and physical big man who plays with passion Always has a size and strength advantage High basketball IQ, doesn’t make many mistakes Advanced footwork in the post with great hands
Needs to add more post moves to his arsenal Touch around the rim/finishing should be better Limited shooting range Not the greatest athlete
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.
