The Spurs center is playing well in the current FIBA World Cup. Even his team finished third place on their stage group. He’s averaged is 11.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 1.3 assists in 20 minutes.
Huge confidence for him this coming training camp. I think behind the in-depth chart of Spur’s third big man. The most surprising is his three-point shooting. In three games he made four of his seven treys. Although it’s a small sample size it’s a good indication that he can shoot when the team needs.
The Spurs big like Aldridge and Poeltl don’t really shoot three. If Metu can improve his health and can prove himself a spot. A good thing then he can offer a spacing when he is on the floor.
The big man from USC was a second-round pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. He was known for his shot-blocking ability. Metu can knock down a midrange also. But injuries derailed his development last Summer League. He led his team Nigeria in shot blocks with 1.7 per game.
