Ike Anigbogu didn’t produce much in his lone season at UCLA, but he flashed the physical tools and upside that could make him a force should the Milwaukee Bucks choose him in the NBA Draft.
Who is Ike Anigbogu?
Even though he played on one of the NCAA’s best teams at UCLA, Ike Anigbogu flew under the radar of most notoriety and attention during his freshman season.
A consensus top-50 recruit, he is one of three one-and-done players to leave the Bruins for the draft, the others being T.J. Leaf and Lonzo Ball, the latter of which commanded much of the spotlight in college.
Coming off the bench, Anigbogu’s basic statline of 13 minutes, 4.7 points, 4 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks per game doesn’t immediately jump out as NBA-ready, but that’s not really what makes him attractive to scouts and front offices.
His frame and athletic base makes him a good candidate for the modern center position, but there does remain some uncertainty regarding how little we’ve seen out of him thus far.
In order to take a closer look at Anigbogu’s prospects, we’ll examine his strengths and weaknesses, plus where the experts project him going come June 22.
