Scouting Report
Assets: A polished, hard-working, athletic 'stretch' big man who can score solidly inside and from the arc. Brings a strong back-to-the-basket game with nice post moves, yet is also very mobile and does a nice job both shooting from the perimeter and lane-filling for big dunks. Has a great wingspan and soft hands for lobs and put-backs.
Flaws: He doesn't get the most as a shot-blocker and rebounder from his great length and reach. Despite good grit and hustle he plays more a finesse game than a power game in the post. He's additionally foul-prone, and can be much more of a passer.
Career Potential: Skilled, athletic rotational 'stretch four' power forward or center.
