   2017 NBA Manifesto
2017-06-29

Daniel Ochefu
C, 6’11, 245lbs, 23 years old, 1 year of experience

Ochefu played only 75 minutes all season, and for whatever reason was not assigned to the D-League. There is very little to read into there from an NBA point of view. Villanova-era Ochefu showed talent, but had neither stand-out athleticism nor strength from the NBA point of view, nor did he run the court, nor did he leave the post much, nor did he stand out in any one area. Ochefu is a post player who could in theory be an NBA finisher and interior defensive option, but whose weaknesses (most notably the unlikeliness that he will ever be able to step out and defend the perimeter adequately at this level) give him an absolute best case scenario of, hmm, Miles Plumlee?

Player Plan: Two years of minimum salary remaining, neither of which is guaran-teed. The lack of draft picks in 2017 may mean he is able to keep a roster spot; then again, although he is quite talented, non-seven-foot NBA posts without elite athleticism are not much of a thing any more.
