- Big-bodied combo forward with a versatile game. When you first think of Baptiste, you think of his ability to use his big frame to carve out space and go to work in the paint. But he's no one-trick pony. He also has the ability to step out, face-up, and knock down the mid-range jump shot. Also, this summer, KJ showed that he can step out to the perimeter and play on the wing. He has a high-basketball IQ and makes good decisions with the ball. He understands how to move the ball and is skilled at entering into the post or finding back-door cutters. On the defensive end, Baptiste is an anchorman rebounder and a smart post defender who will step in and take a charge. He's only going to get better as he extends his range and improves his handle.
