Scouting Report
Assets: Active and strong defensively: a talented and constant shot-blocker, a cagey and hard-working rebounder, and a heads-up man defender who will get some steals. Has a solid back-to-the-basket game offensively. Can both hit the mid-range open shot and pass well in the post.
Flaws: Not bulky for a center, which presents some challenges in the rebounding department at the pro level. Not really a threat to stretch defenses with his shooting range. Gets foul-prone at times and needs to keep learning to pick his spots on shot-blocking attempts.
Career Potential: Long, nimble shot-blocking center.
