Arinze Onuaku

Arinze Onuaku (ORL) – “AO?” 

(Kim Klement/USA TODAY Sports)


orl Power Forward/Center: 6’9, 255 lbs; 3rd year, Syracuse | Career: 2.5 points/game, 2.5 rebounds/game, 40% FG

Arinze Onuaku: a journeyman big who adds depth to Frank Vogel’s frontcourt rotation; bounced around the globe since beginning his career (undrafted) outta Syracuse in 2011 – made his most notable impact in the PBA; bruising, throwback forward: Onuaku likes scoring w/ his back to the rim, has to adjust his game to the perimeter to survive these days; good rebounder, uses a strong base to corral boards (sometimes struggles v. quicker matchups though); can he carve out a 4th big* role under Coach Vogel?

*similar to Thomas Robinson (LAL)‘s current standing in LA – “we’ll call ya if we absolutely need ya”

DOG Status: UnderDOG


NBA Role: bruiser

Signature Shot: TBD.
