One thing Okoro needs to improve on is finishing in the paint. Probably just needs to develop
some moves and put on some muscle.
I agree he needs moves but not muscle. Dude is a tank

He was supposed to be a good finisher. I just think like I said early, his size right now is a bit of an issue. He is having a bit of an issue with the length, and he is mostly below the rim finisher on his drives(despite being an elite leaper off 1 foot). He is very well balanced on his drives and controlled, but the length is affecting his shot right now. I believe he will adjust to it. But like I said, I wish he was 2 inches taller. That applies to the defensive end as well.

I have seen progress as far as attacking off the dribble and creating plays off screens. I like that. It will take some time, but I do see progress in certain areas.

I'm seeing the same thing. I've watched him play literally perfect defense a few times a game and his lack of length is what prevented him from altering a shot enough to force a miss. Part of it is also NBA players being extremely good. But the lack of length is a thing. It's a game of inches.

I think he has the physical ability to be a good driver. He's springy. He's flashes skill (tries layups with both hands) but will also demonstrate a rawness of skill on the same drive. Becomes more apparent with every game that he needs to dedicate the offseason to fixing his handle. He definitely lacks refinement around the rim. Out of control, not anticipating contact well.

I definitely believe he's a two-guard you pair with a dominant ballhandling PG. You have him guard the other team's best guard and lock them down.
