Daniel is an intriguing prospect because of his length, athleticism, and upside. He's an effective finisher around the rim. He shot 60% from the floor, but what stands out the most is his ability to run the floor. According to Synergy he shot 81% in transition on 42 possessions, 1.50 PPP. He scores the ball well off the bounce. He uses his athleticism to do the dirty work. His length and quickness off the floor allow him to change/block shots, as well as control the glass. In 22 minutes of play he averaged 6.7 rebounds per game (2 offensive) and 2.2 blocks (0.10 per minute).
He's still learning how to play the game. He started playing organized ball at age 14 and still needs to improve on the offensive end. He shot 44% from the post, which was average according to Synergy. Although he's still raw on the offensive end he's has shown glimpses of a 15 ft shooting touch. In addition to his offensive deficiencies he needs to improve as a free throw shooter. As time progresses he'll need to continue to improve his body and add more strength. Consistency will be key as his playing time increases.
