The 7'0" 238 lbs. center averaged 17.8 points (first on the team) and 7.3 rebounds (second on the team) per game while shooting 62.9% from the field and 77.6% from the free throw line. He is foregoing his final year of eligibility but has already received his bachelor's degree.

He had a rough NBA Scouting Combine as he was exposed as not as great of an athlete as he showed in games. Olynyk rated lower than most forwards and his 6’10” wingspan has raised some red flag for some teams and scouts.

As a player who can score in the post or beyond the arc, Olynyk sounds like the perfect player on the offensive end to stretch the defense. The questions arise about whether he could handle guarding NBA power forwards/centers.
Do the Sixers think he’d be a fit? Find out on June 27th.
