Scouting Report
Assets: His coordination and basketball instincts are impressive for a player with his long frame (including a near-7-foot wingspan) and he's a solid competitor who works to make the right play. His athleticism and length suggest he might eventually be able to play anywhere from shooting guard to power forward.
Flaws: A general lack of explosiveness is a hindrance on the defensive end especially, and he doesn't yet make up for it with polished skills. While mostly mistake-free as a ball-handler he's not yet an accurate shooter (from outside or on free throws) nor much of a passer. He needs significant work on fundamentals and must bulk up his frame.
Career Potential: Toolsy but raw combo forward with rotational upside.
