PLAYER RANGE: NBA Contributor - NBA All-Star

PLAYER COMPARISON: The Milwaukee Bucks version of Brook Lopez. Rudy Goebert
UNDENIABLE SKILL: Shot Blocking
STRENGTHS: Walker is a fluid athlete and shows great agility and mobility for a player his size. He possesses the requisite functional athleticism to contend with players in space. Tremendous, gifted shot blocker and rim protector. Has shown the ability to step out to distance and make an occasional 3. Legit 7’0″ player. Displays a high motor when attacking the offensive glass and running the floor in transition. Very efficient player. Elite lob threat. Intuitive cutter. Good passer. Strong rebounder.
CONCERNS: Kessler’s range to the 3pt line is still in development. He also needs to continue to get stronger and refine his ability to score on the low block with his back to the basket.
