Scouting Report
Assets: Truly dominant in the low post as a rebounder, shot-blocker, and scorer; simply unstoppable at times, at both ends of the court. A rare mix of explosive athleticism, power, physicality, and work ethic. Runs and leaps like a guard. Has some leadership skills.
Flaws: Foul-prone (especially with technical fouls). Turns the ball over a lot for a center and could be a much better passer. Lacks shooting range and really needs to hone his free-throw shooting (since so many of his shots are from the charity stripe).
Career Potential: All-Star post player & perennial Defensive Player of the Year candidate.
