An incredibly powerful, yet undersized four man w/ bruiser upside, Jarnell Stokes is a beast in the lane; a lot of Jarnell’s game is predicated on brute strength – immovable base down low complemented by soft touch around the rim; struggles to release clean looks against superior athletes – Stokes is quick in his own right (if you’re playing lax, he’ll get by you) but doesn’t yet have the outside J to draw out defenders & give his inside attack some support; defense is a work in progress – Stokes might never become a rim protector but he holds his ground in the post & crashes the boards; won DEN’s final roster spot in 2016 – Stokes gives Mike Malone another big body up front
