Strengths:
-Good size for a wing at 6'5 without shoes, with a 6'8 wingspan
-Frame is on the lighter side right now at 179 pounds, but looks to be at an early stage of development physically and should continue to fill out
-Has a very projectable shooting stroke. Good footwork and mechanics. Made spot-ups and even pull-ups at a good rate during the camp
-Unselfish player who can find the open man
-Quick and aggressive in transition, can score off straight-line takes in the half-court
-Competitor who plays with a distinct edge. Likes to get after it defensively. Shows a great motor

Weaknesses:
-Unpolished scorer who doesn't know how to finish everything he creates at the moment
-Ball-handling skills are a work in progress in the half-court
-Decision making is unpolished. Out of control driving down the lane wildly for charges
-Smooth, but not incredibly explosive athletically
-Has a 2-guard's frame, but the game of a small forward.

Outlook: Kazumba showed impressive sparks of talent as the camp moved on, as he has good fundamentals and a nice framework of skills to grow into. He found a comfort level in the second and especially the last day of the camp, and showed nice versatility in a few different areas. Like Faye, he seems to be making significant progress at the NBA Academy in Africa, and it will be interesting to see how he continues to develop over the next year plus in Senegal. He's got plenty of work to do on his all-around polish, but looks to be at an early stage of development still and seems to have plenty of upside to continue to improve.
