Meet Dallas Mavericks summer league roster: EJ Onu- F/C
Onu produced some incredible stats during his four years at Shawnee State University. Last season, he averaged 16.9 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 4.6 blocks in 29.6 minutes per game. The 6’11 big man blocked an incredible 5.7 shots a night as a junior. His instincts and ability to protect the rim are impressive. It will be interesting to see if he can defend without fouling in Vegas.
Onu’s skillset becomes even more intriguing after connecting on 40.0 percent of his 130 3-point attempts as a senior. If the 6’11 big man can become a floor spacer and rim protector at the next level, every team in the league will be lining up to secure his services.
Onu went undrafted for a reason, though. The 22-year-old produced impressive numbers in the NAIA, but there are questions on how it will translate at the next level. His age knocked him in the draft too.
Onu dominated his competition in college, which is all any team can ask for. He has the size and skill to be impactful in Las Vegas. EJ Onu is someone to during summer league. If he stands out, expect the Dallas Mavericks to try to lock him up.
