The scouts decsribe him following way: A high flyer who causes matchup problems because of his versatility
(by James Burbridg for NBADraft.net in 2007)
Can take bigger guys off the dribble and post up smaller players. Able to play the finesse game as well as be a bull in the post. Very tough minded, which is a misconception based upon his slight frame. A very hard worker, evidenced by his statistical climb from freshman to sophomore year and the noticeable improvement on his jumpshot. Capable of making eye popping plays either as a distributor, a finisher and also on the defensive end of the floor.
First and foremost, his jumpshot. While it is undoubtedly improved, there is still much work to be done. With a reliable jumpshot that defenders would have to respect, the damage Julian could do to opposing defenses would jump tenfold

  JUCO - Obi Agu signs to Western Wyoming College  - by Eurobasket News - 12 hours ago

Barking Abbey forward Obinna Agu (6'6''-F-97) has signed to Western Wyoming College for the 2017-18 season. The 6'5 Agu has completed 3 years at BA after joining from Newham Youngbloods, in particular taking a leadership role during the 2016-17 season whilst helping BA to an undefeated season in the EABL and the National League Division 2 league and playoff title. 'I'm delighted for Obi, that he's able to continue his basketball career moving onto the US,' BA Head Coach Lloyd Gardner commented. 'There hasn't been many players that have maximised their ability coming through our programme the way Obi has. He's been one of the hardest workers that we've had in his three years with us.' Agu becomes the third BA player who will be on the Mustangs' roster for this season, joining Amin Adamu and alumnus Calvin Nevill-Kintu. 'I think that moving onto a place like Western Wyoming, where he'll be able to continue alongside two other Barking Abbey students is truly deserved for a player like Obi,' added Gardner. 'On the floor he's a very versatile athlete and I think he'll be able to help Western Wyoming, not just with his skill set and offensive and defensive ability,but through his leadership. 'He was a major factor in our success last year in both the EABL and National League season because of the leadership he was able to provide within games and in practice, he was a role model to some of the other players within our programme.' Agu averaged 9.9 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game in the EABL last season and represented the Great Britain Under-20s at the Division B European Championships this summer - his first call up to a National Team - where he helped them to Division A promotion.

  Australia - LA Lakers add Bogut to their roster  - by Eurobasket News - 2 days ago

In 2005 Bogut was drafted by Milwaukee Bucks as #1 pick overall. The former University of Utah standoutis in his 13th (hopefully lucky) season in pro basketball.
The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others Bogut was voted Eurobasket.com All-Olympic Games 2nd Team in 2016.
He has been also a member of Australian international program for some years. Bogut has regularly played for Australian senior team since 2004 and previously for U21 National Team between 2004 and 2005.
He also represented Australia at the World Championships U18 in Greece fourteen years ago.
Bogut has played previously professionally in other NBA team (Golden State Warriors) and Australia (Australian Institute Sport).
On Bogut: A hard worker with a strong commitment to improving his skills. An excellent passer, Andrew will focus on developing his body.
World Championships U18 '03 comments (by Yarone Arbel):
The MVP of the championship. His parents are from Croatia, which is some sort of explanation to how such talent grew up down under. If for some reason something will go wrong on his route to the NBA, the Croatian passport will surely help him find a good spot in one of the top European teams. Next season he will go to Utah University, in the championship itself he was simply unstoppable, posting double-double already after one half in both Semi Finals and Finals game.
He knows how to use his size in the PF. Very tall and athletic, and although there's no doubt he's the best player in the team, on court he fights like a bull, work with his teammates and make them look much much better. There's no doubt that Bogut was the difference between a nice Australian NT and a gold winning team that routed everyone on the way to the top. All teams focused and tried to stop Bogut. All failed and paid even more because of Bogut's unselfishness.
He got a great mobility in the low post, box him out and he can go out to the high post and the Swish will arrive in less than a second. His shot selection is very good, can hit the three pointer when there's a chance, but he doesn't force it. If you try to stop his outside shot, he can penetrate, on both sides, and mostly finish with 2 points. His rebounding skill is bigger than life, on both ends of the floor, and it's not only a matter of good position. His leap and struggle helps him a lot.
Let's try to impress with titles: 3rd best scorer, best rebounder with 3.7 more rebounds than the runner up, drawn more fouls and made free throws more than anyone else, 10th in blocks, 2nd in 2FG% and first, again by a big margin, in the TENDEX ranking. 22 pts, 18 rbs and 5 assists vs. the USA in the Semi Finals qualifying match, 39 pts & 25 (!!!) rbs in the Semi Finals vs. Croatia and 35 pts & 14 rbs in the finals. What do you say about that?
