Scouting Report
Assets: Dominant defensively: possibly the NBA's best shot-blocker, and a very good man-to-man stopper. Quick and explosive for a big man. Blessed with very long limbs and fluid athleticism. Has a great motor and works hard during the game. Shows a smooth shooting stroke out to the arc, and usually hits his free throws.
Flaws: For a great defender he's not the rebounder he can be. Foul-prone at times, and sometimes plays with too much of an edge. After showing great improvement and progress early in his career his production he seems to have levelled off; must keep working to improve, especially as a passer and scorer.
Career Potential: All-round excellent starting power forward.
