Scouting Report
Assets: Does it all: can play a power game in the post thanks to his long arms and great footwork, yet has excellent hands and excels as a mid-range shooter. A good passer for a big man. Also a hard-working defender and a clutch leader on the court.
Flaws: Could be more of a rebounder. Isn't a good 3-point shooter. Takes a lot of punishment lining up against often-bigger power forwards, which leads to durabililty issues (and he struggles to push 80 games every season).
Career Potential: All-Star do-it-all forward.
