Mfiondu Kabengele Stats
Despite coming off the bench, Mfiondu Kabengele led the Florida State Seminoles with 13.2 points per game (PPG). Kabengele's wingspan and frame have also helped him become a serviceable rebounder, averaging 5.9 rebounds per game (RPG) as a sophomore.

Mfiondu Kabengele NBA Draft Predictions
Indiana Pacers (No. 18) or Charlotte Hornets (No. 36)
The range of outcomes for Kabengele in this draft is vast. However, his defensive prowess, NBA-ready body and ability to protect the rim could make him a great fit for the Indiana Pacers at No. 18.
With Frank Kaminsky set to enter restricted free agency, the Charlotte Hornets could be looking for his replacement this summer. Kabengele could be a great fit if he falls to No. 36, as he's a versatile defender with intriguing offensive upside.
