Shun’s eval below is right on the money in terms of what I saw Baker do here today. He is a specialist as a rebounder and shot changer though he possesses a slender frame. His length at the 4 position reminds me of classmate Daniel Purifoy (GA) though Baker isn’t as strong through his upper body as Purifoy is. That said his specialities are a plus as you know what you’re going to get production wise.

Baker is an long athletic forward that runs the floor, active on the glass rebounding inside and outside of his area. He is still developing offensively.
