30. Forward Keita Bates-Diop, Ohio State Buckeyes

Bates-Diop is one of the more well-rounded players in the entire draft this year. Keita Bates-Diop is a junior from Ohio State who is thought to not have that much of a ceiling based on his age coming into the draft.

Although Bates-Diop is 22 years old, he is one of the most complete players in the draft. Keita Bates-Diop is a monster defensively and could be a solid rotation player early on. Keita Bates-Diop averaged 19.8 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 1.6 assists during his junior season at Ohio State. Keita Bates-Diop is being compared to Houston Rockets forward Luc Richard Mbah a Moute.
