2015 adidas Eurocamp: Day Two June 7, 2015 Guerschon Yabusele scored 23 points on 7-13 from the field to go along with 9 rebounds in the early game as the French U20 National Team downed the Greek U19 National Team. A chiseled big man with long arms and excellent athleticism, Yabusele is more than just a bruiser, possessing nice hands and touch around the rim, flashing some ability to create off the bounce, and finishing strong inside, sometimes emphatically. His jump shooting mechanics away from the rim are a work in progress, even if he's a capable shooter, and he forces some shots and drives from the midrange, but it isn't difficult to see why he was able to contribute as a regular starter in the French 2nd division at age 19 averaging 8.5 points and 4.3 rebounds for Roanne.
Coming up with a number of blocks and steals today, the 19 year old also rebounded the ball well, which is significant considering that has been a the knock on him through his career. Built similarly to Jarnell Stokes, but preferring to play facing the basket, it isn't surprising the Yabusele has been so productive through two games against younger, less seasoned competition here. If he can continue to play with the same kind of motor in Pro A next season, his physical tools, budding skill level and intriguing versatility will almost certainly keep him on the NBA radar after what he showed this weekend.
