Okoro will be good. They are very high on him. They’ve been impressed in the first few days of camp. But he’s 19, hasn’t even had a full scrimmage yet and this is the quickest turnaround in nba history for a rookie. That’s…a lot. https://t.co/4fs8lugiyt

The Cavs took the Auburn University product with the No. 5 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
Okoro played one season at Auburn and averaged 12.9 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game.
With the Cavs in a bit of a rebuild after last season’s 19-46 finish, Okoro should have a decent role in the Cavs’ rotation this season.
The 2020-21 NBA season is set to begin on Dec. 22.
