Scouting Report
Assets: A supreme athlete for a big man: can out-run most guards and out-jump most forwards. When focused he works hard at both ends, and will log a high number of blocks and steals. A good passer for his size. Tough to match up against due to his size, explosiveness, dexterity, and lefty shot.
Flaws: Not a good free-throw shooter at all and is streaky in general; needs work on focus and consistency. Sometimes picks the big play over the efficient one. Occasionally loses composure when things aren't going well, and has had run-ins with coaches.
Career Potential: Inconsistent star forward with unique tools.
