Joel Embiid's one and only season at Kansas was slightly shortened by injury, but the 28 games he played in were enough to get most scouts drooling.
Averaging 11.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists while shooting 62.6 percent is impressive enough, but the 7-footer added 2.6 blocks per game for good measure.
According to his player profile on the Kansas athletics website, Embiid didn't start playing basketball until he was 16 years old.
Given what he showed during his freshman season, that's pretty remarkable.
On the contrary, it also means he lacks the lifelong experience that others in the draft have and that he has a ton to learn yet, especially from a basketball IQ standpoint.
Perhaps the biggest concern, though, is his reliability.
According to David Aldridge of NBA.com, Embiid's agent, Arn Tellem, didn't make the big man's medical records available at the pre-draft camp last week.
Whether or not they get released prior to the draft is yet to be seen, but with the Greg Oden disaster still fresh in the minds of many, hiding ailments is probably not a great idea.
Why He Fits: Truth be told, Embiid doesn't really fit. Still, given the fact that he has a strong skill set and put together an excellent freshman season for someone who hasn't played the game long means the Bucks have to do their due diligence and give him serious thought.
Why He Doesn't: Despite a horrendous year, Larry Sanders just signed a hefty extension last summer and John Henson has shown glimpses of emerging as the team's future power forward. Even setting Embiid's injury issues aside, the Bucks have a talented frontcourt, and there simply isn't much room for him.
