However, he hasn’t yet broken through in the ways that fans had hoped when he was drafted in the 2020 draft.
The player has averaged 9.2 points, 3 rebounds, and 1.9 assists since he first entered the league.
But will this be the year that he achieves even more?

Okoro was seen putting in work at an Auburn gym the other day, practicing his jump shot and getting in the zone just a few months ahead of the regular season starting again.
The young athlete attended Auburn during college and he is obviously seeking inspiration from his alma mater.
He needs it because the Cavs will require Okoro to step it up even more in the upcoming season.
Okoro has always been seen as a defensive-minded wing but his defensive skills need to be enhanced even more.
He has seen improvements when it comes to his offensive output and now it’s time to see if he can become a better player on both sides of the floor.
Okoro made an All-Rookie team in his first NBA season and should be a major part of the Cavaliers in the new season.
He has remained healthy and strong, appearing in 67 games during each of his first two seasons.
The plan is to have him develop even more as a reliable and consistent bench player who can create shots and get stops too.
Seeing Okoro playing on his old court is a good sign indeed and proves that he is remaining focused during the summer.
If he can improve his game even more, the Cavaliers are going to be feeling the benefits in some huge way.
