Samba is without a doubt more athletic than Nana is. Be interesting to see what happens If he gets stronger and adds 20 lbs of muscle and he works hard and improves his offensive game significantly. We have one of the best big man coaches in the country in Orlando. There is the possibility that he could develop into something special. Practicing everyday against the likes of Giorgi and Kofi and potentially Bernard Kouma if he ever signs will only benefit him.Does Samba Kane have the potential to do what Nnanna Egwu did his sophomore year?
