Devontae Cacok is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association (NBA), on a two-way contract with the South Bay Lakers of the NBA G League.
Cacok is below the league’s 6’11” average height for centers, his ability to rebound allows him to make up for some of his vertical deficiencies.
Cacok set the NCAA record for field-goal percentage in 2016-17, making 80.0 percent of his shots.
Devontae Cacok exhibits confidence with how he’s able to footwork to create separation from his opponent and get a better look at the rim. That footwork is also beneficial when he’s deciding to score from that angle by being able to put up hook shots, position his feet forward to take a mid-range attempt, or take a fadeaway jumper. That fadeaway is seen in the clip below as he uses a little spin move on the right block to get some separation before putting up a pretty jumper.
