Scotto's draft Notes:

“I liked Klintman last year in the draft,” an NBA scout told HoopsHype. “He’s a little stiff at times, but he shows promise on his shot. His stiffness reminds me of Bobby Portis a little bit at that size and being able to shoot. He’s got size, and he can operate in the mid-post. He can make some three-point shots.”
