Scouting Report
Assets: A smart, hard-working veteran presence in the post. Still above-average as a rebounder and shot-blocker. Never stops working on or off the hardwood. Brings power, skill, intensity, and leadership to the court every game.
Flaws: Age and injuries have limited his ability to play big minutes. Has become injury-prone later in his career. A little undersized for an NBA post player (although his huge wingspan makes up for it).
Career Potential: Quality role-playing vet power forward (when healthy) & leader.
