Scouting Report

Okogie decided to enter the draft after two successful seasons in college, but his time at Georgia Tech wasn't free of controversy. Okogie started all 37 of the Yellow Jackets' games in 2016-17 and was named to the ACC All-Freshman squad after averaging a team-leading 16.1 points along with 5.4 rebounds. His 2017-18 season, though, didn't begin until Dec. 17 due to a six-game suspension for accepting benefits in violation of NCAA rules and a finger injury that cost him another two contests. Georgia Tech said an internal investigation showed Okogie received benefits valued at less than $750 from a person that was not a booster nor employed by the school. Okogie started the final 24 games last season and averaged a team-best 18.2 points - fourth in the ACC - and 6.3 rebounds while becoming just the sixth player in program history to score over 1,000 points by the end of his sophomore year. That was enough for Okogie to declare for the draft, where he's expected to be an early second-round selection. Okogie is a versatile player who can play both guard positions and also has the strength and athleticism to hold his own at the small forward spot. He was a solid 3-point shooter at Georgia Tech, making a combined 38.2 percent (66 of 173) in his two seasons. Okogie also is a strong defensive player. He was second in the ACC last season with 1.75 steals per game and averaged 0.96 blocks to lead all conference players 6-foot-4 or shorter.
