Isaac Okoro
20-Year-Old ForwardF
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Okoro will join a Cavaliers squad that went just 19-46 in the 2019-20 season, and he figures to be heavily featured in the team's relatively thin forward rotation, though he'll have to compete with Cedi Osman, Kevin Porter Jr. and Kevin Love for minutes. The 6-foot-6 product out of Auburn averaged 12.9 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.9 blocks and 0.9 steals on 51.4 percent shooting from the floor during his freshman season. Okoro will need to improve on his three-point range after shooting just 29.0 percent from deep across 28 games during his one year at the collegiate level. Still, we can likely expect Okoro to at least see sixth-man minutes as a rookie. If that's the case, he'll likely be worth a flier in deeper leagues. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio

Okoro was born Jan. 26, 2001 in Atlanta, Georgia to Nigerian parents, Godwin and Gloria Okoro. Isaac was raised close to downtown Atlanta. He has three siblings: Michael, Rachel and Ashley. Okoro began playing basketball in his local church league. While around seven years old, he was trained by AAU coach Omar Cooper. Okoro played high school ball at McEachern High School in Powder Springs, Georgia, and graduated with honors. As a sophomore, he led the team to the regional championship while averaging 22.5 points per game. Later, as a senior, he averaged 19.7 points, 10.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2.7 steals per game and led McEachern to titles at the City of Palms Classic and the Tournament of Champions. The team finished 32-0. Okoro had his jersey retired by the school in 2019. At college, he went to Auburn, where he studied business and was named Second Team All-SEC as a freshman. After his freshman season, he declared himself eligible for the 2020 NBA Draft. Fans can follow the forward on Twitter @isaacokoro303.

College/International Summary

Okoro needed just one season with Auburn to prove to scouts he was NBA ready despite the fact neither ESPN or Rivals had him ranked in their top-25. The 6-6 wing debuted Nov. 5 against Georgia Southern, scoring 12 points and starting a streak of six consecutive games in double figures. Okoro's collegiate career high came in SEC play, as he put up 23 points in a 83-79 victory over Vanderbilt on Jan. 8. He finished the year with averages of 12.9 points and 4.4 rebounds, but Okoro's defensive contributions were also of major note, as he went on to earn first-team SEC All-Defense honors. He also made the SEC All-Freshman team and second team all-SEC that year. Auburn had been in line for a bid in the NCAA Tournament, but it was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic and Okoro made clear his intentions to explore the NBA Draft on March 20, later making his decision official May 9.

Scores team-high 18 points
FCleveland Cavaliers
May 17, 2021
Okoro produced 18 points (6-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-8 FT) and three rebounds across 34 minutes in Sunday's 123-109 loss to the Nets.
Darius Garland (ankle) missed the season finale, so the team slid Collin Sexton to the point and employed Okoro in a hybrid guard-forward role in the loss. The Cavs' backcourt has suffered through many injuries in the backcourt, and Okoro has benefited, especially over the last month of the season. The 2020 first-round pick should have a bright future in Cleveland's youth-focused rebuild.
