2015 Nike Hoop Summit Final Recap
April 11, 2015
While Murray paced the World Team with his play in the backcourt, Labissiere manned the middle, putting a lid on the rim on defense while scoring in a variety of ways in the half court and transition. The 7-foot pogo stick and our current projected No. 1 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft went for 21 points on 9-of-15 shooting to go along with six blocks and six rebounds in 27 minutes.



The fluid and explosive Kentucky bound big man showed excellent timing and instincts as a shot blocker, helping frustrate the US Team early on as they failed to score until Luke Kennard hit a jump shot with 4:28 left in the first quarter.

As expected, the World Team bothered the US Team all game long with its size and length and Labissiere was a big reason why. Aside from protecting the rim, Labissiere showed excellent versatility as a perimeter defending with excellent footwork on closeouts, evident late in the game as he was able to keep Kennard in front and get a piece of his potential game-tying jumper with 3.9 seconds left.

Labissiere was much more than just a defensive presence, however. The 7-footer knocked down a couple of mid-range jumpers, finished several jump hooks in the lane, some with great range, and finished over length at the rim due to his excellent leaping ability. The bouncy big man also flashed his quick second jump on the offensive glass. Labissiere's physical tools, versatility on defense, and offensive skill-set him up for a monster season at Kentucky and should make it tough for whatever team ends up with the No. 1 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft to pass him up.

2015 Nike Hoop Summit: International Practice Days One and Two
April 8, 2015
Skal Labissiere: The Kentucky-bound 7-footer and #1 prospect in our 2016 Mock Draft turned heads as soon as the ball rolled out on Monday afternoon with his size, developing body, athleticism and smooth shooting stroke. The Haitian big man gave NBA scouts and executives a glimpse of his monster potential in the 5-on-5 sessions on Tuesday. Labissiere showcased his rare blend of size, athleticism and shooting ability by making plays at the rim on both ends, while knocking down a post turnaround over Maker's 7-3 wingspan and drilling a pick and pop jumper with his smooth, high release. Labissiere wasn't perfect, but his potential as a two-way, versatile big man who can score inside and out was most certainly on display. The 7-foot, 216-pound athlete figures to be a handful for Team USA on both ends of the floor.

2015 Nike Hoop Summit: International Measurements
April 6, 2015
Skal Labissiere
Height (w/ shoes): 7-0
Weight: 216
Wingspan: 7-1 1/2
Hand Width: 9 1/4
Hand Length: 8 3/4
Standing Reach: 9-0 1/2
Country: Haiti

Labissiere has terrific size at 7-0, but his wingspan and standing reach are both unexceptional relative to his height, and are in fact shorter than that of the 6-9 Cheick Diallo. His body type looks somewhat similar to that of Chris Bosh's at the same age, even if his wingspan is two inches shorter. Joakim Noah also has a similar wingspan and frame (although he was much older at the NBA Combine), even though his reach was a little shorter than Skal's. Labissierre measured 6'10 without shoes and 198 pounds in the summer of 2013. The 18 pounds he's gained since then are promising, but the skilled 7-footer still has a lot of work to do on his frame moving forward.
