Rakim is one of the best players and biggest winners in Europe and is a great NBA fit. A super-versatile swingman who is often too big and strong for defenders, Rakim is a match-up nightmare and his quickness and handle along with his strength allow him to get wherever he wants to go on the floor. Rakim has the body and explosive athletic ability to finish with contact at the rim. Has turned into an outstanding 3pt shooter, tested at the Euroleague level.  He has developed into an high-level defensive stopper on the wings utilizing his physicality along with excellent lateral quickness and a 6’10.5” wingspan to disrupt the offense.   Had a fantastic 2014-15 with Sassari in Italy winning all-three Titles: Super-Cup, Cup, League Finals.  Added All-Italy, All-Import honors and Italian League Finals MVP to his great season.  Won the MVP of the 2016 Italian Cup and was named MVP of the Italian League Finals in 2016 with Armani Milano.
