Zach has worked out with the Pistons and the Wizards.

Nana is working out with the Raptors, who unfortunately have no draft picks but are apparently looking at free agents or G-league players.

It’s hard to know who has the higher ceiling. I think Nana is the classic tweener without the skill to play the 4 or the size for the 5.

Zach will find himself in a position to solely focus on his hoops skills. Remember everyone said MM wasn’t athletic enough too but he worked himself into being well conditioned and a good defender.

I think Zach’s success depends on hitting the 3. He doesn’t have quickness or athleticism required in NBA but if he can consistently shoot from long range, that could get him a look.

Zach & Nana NBA Workouts

I don't think either of them have any shot at all at making the NBA, but both could have nice careers in Europe. Zach at the NBA level would be a small three - but would have no ability to guard any three in the league. And Nana's offense is greatly limited by having no outside shot and no post move other than backing in for a jump hook. Both were great mid-major players who led the Bison to some great seasons - but neither is an NBA prospect.

How about Stephen Brown? He is lightning quick which allows him to get to the rim, his jumper is vastly improved, he is a very good passer with solid ball skills, and he loves to play D. As I see it, his small stature is his only major limitation.

Brown wouldn’t be able to defend an average NBA guard in terms of speed and would be shot over at will.

I agree with B137 that Zach and Nana are not NBA material at this point. They could certainly play in the G-league though or somewhere in Europe.

I think Stephen is quick enough to play in the NBA, but not tall enough. Also, he'd need to be able to shoot NBA 3's at 40% to have any chance, which would be a challenge. I'm sure he'll be playing basketball somewhere next year.

I agree that neither Zach nor Nana have NBA skills. And yes, a nice European career is definitely possible.
