Labissiere goes from mystery to valued
A 6-foot-10 rising junior at Evangelical Christian School, just outside of Memphis, Labissiere is a player many heard about but few had seen -- at least until this spring and summer.
Labissiere hadn't played much on the summer circuit previously. This year he's been playing in the Nike EYBL and highly visible at camps such as Nike's Elite 100 and the NBPA Top 100 Camp.
Ranking No. 6 in the class of 2015, Labissiere has been backing up the hype and this scouting video from the NBPA camp shows much of what he's capable.
The native of Haiti is a long and skilled post player with soft hands. He scores with either hand around the basket, runs the floor extremely well and is a very good shot-blocker who uses timing and feel instead of raw athleticism. He is on the lean side, but he's not afraid to tangle with bigger and stronger players and he's shown that he won't back down from a fight in the post.
In July he'll be touring with the Arkansas Wings 16U team and he'll be among the most-watched players around.
