KRYSTEN PEEK: There has never been a player quite like Chet Holmgren. He's a 7 foot 1 blocking machine and can handle the ball like a guard. He's incredible at taking players off the dribble and has fantastic footwork. The most polarizing thing about him, and the thing that scares NBA scouts the most, is his slight frame at just 195 pounds. And he'll need to work on adding some weight at the next level.

Holmgren has been compared to Kristaps Porzingis and OKC center Aleskej Pokusevski. It'll be interesting to see which way the Magic will go with the number one pick. And it's looking like a two-way race between Holmgren and Jabari Smith. Wherever he lands, he's a swing-for-the-fences type prospect and just might change the way the game is played for bigs in the league.
