Summary:

Chris Cokley is an athletic combo forward that can finish plays around the basket and rebound the basketball.  He is a high-motor player that will compete on every possession, but he will likely need to improve his perimeter skills, as well as show that he can guard a variety of players to be able to transition better to the next level.

He had a good showing in Day 3 of the 2018 Portsmouth Invitational, and Cokley could end up making an NBA team’s summer league roster this year.
