Pitino with another 2015 trick up his sleeve??


Could Pitino have another move up his sleeve for the 2015 class? According to Justin Young of Hoopseen.com it seems very possible.

6’9 Yankuba Sima could very well be the next diamond in the rough steal for Pitino. At 18 years old Sima is projected to go #19 in the 1st round of the 2016 NBA Draft by draftexpress.com. Jonathan Givony of Draft Express had this to say about Sima’s upside:

-Terrific physical attributes. Nice frame. Long arms. Very good athlete
-Runs the floor extremely well
-Very reliable target for catch and finish plays
-Good hands allow him to catch virtually everything thrown to him
-Finishes with two hands easily and emphatically with no running start
-Excellent offensive rebounder (6.4 per-40 minutes)
-Legit rim protector
-Very mobile, can step out into the perimeter on defense
-Shooting mechanics look decent. Made 71% of free throw attempts
-Took a 3, and didn’t look half bad doing so
