Scouting Report
Assets: A strong, long, elite power player. Fearless an uniquely mobile in the paint, especially as a defender. Gives up little to his man under the basket defensively, and on offense he takes smart, high-percentage shots. Highly efficient: limits fouls and turnovers. Team-first, with good passing tools and calm, cool leadership ability.
Flaws: Despite his long limbs he's slightly undersized for an NBA pivot (which may contribute to his durability issues, including a significant history of major pectoral injuries). While a solid perimeter shooter he's not a knock-down type from the arc.
Career Potential: All-Star center or power forward (when healthy).
