Scouting Report
Assets: Super-versatile and energetic in the frontcourt. He has enough size to play some center yet is skilled and nimble enough to line up at small forward if needed. Does a great job of taking high-percentage shots, and he uses his excellent leaping ability to finish with authority. He's also a very good passer for a big man.
Flaws: While he usually hits for a very high field goal percentage, he doesn't stretch the defense much with a consistent 3-point offering. Additionally, he doesn't pile up steals or blocks as a defensive playmaker.
Career Potential: Explosive, skilled big man with starter potential.
