Scouting Report
Assets: Can be dominant at times in the low post, thanks to his legitimate 7-foot frame, a huge wingspan, top-tier athleticism and coordination, and impressive strength. Very quick for his size and can be overpowering as a rebounder and shot-blocker. Brings soft hands and solid footwork to the center spot.
Flaws: Has been highly injury-prone early in his career, stalling his development. Commits far too many fouls. Needs work on his offensive approach in general and would benefit by developing more go-to moves in the paint and a mid-range jumper. Needs to be more consistent.
Career Potential: Potentially dominant center (when healthy).
