Scouting Report
Assets: Very mobile, agile, and athletic for a center. Shows superb dexterity and passes well out of the post. Takes smart, high-percentage shots and has some nice low-post moves. Can run the court like a small forward and fills the lane. Has long arms and good anticipation for shot-blocking.
Flaws: Not very wide-bodied, so must rely more on timing and quickness in the post (making him foul-prone at times). Would benefit a lot by developing a more consistent shooting stroke (from the perimeter and the free throw line).
Career Potential: Nimble center with upside.
