Scouting Report
Assets: A jaw-dropping shot-blocker and rebounder who's a true monster in the paint. Quick and athletic for a guy his size, with an amazing 7-foot-7 wingspan. Has great timing and hustles, with rare ability to contest every shot in the lane without fouling much. Flashes soft hands (helping him hit jumpers fairly regularly from the short- to mid-range).
Flaws: A late bloomer who still sometimes plays out of control. Has faced some questions about his maturity level. Needs more bulk on his physique, and must work to become more offensively polished (especially with his shooting stroke). Rarely passes the ball.
Career Potential: Dominant defensive center.
