Bayav is a very long power forward and a nice athlete. He might not show blazing quickness, but for a 6'10 player with very good wingspan, he is rather fast running the court, and he displays a good vertical leap. Those gifts and his decent timing make him a good shot-blocker. He's also skinny—awfully skinny.
Engin likes to play on the perimeter, facing the basket to shoot treys or pass the ball. He sees the court well and usually chooses the best option. He is a decent shooter from behind the arc or from the midrange, but mainly from static positions, not showing off-the-dribble skills. He has a long way to go toward a reliable post game. For the present, he prefers shooting turnaround jumpers to anything else down low. Besides, although he is an able handler, he rarely looks to penetrate and get inside. Defensively he has to work on his lateral movement if he wants to defend smaller power forwards and needs to bulk up to gain consistent presence in the paint.
Bayav is still quite raw. He needs to polish his skills, to expand his game and, especially, to physically develop his body. But he hints at nice potential, especially considering that he's a 1987 guy.
