Scouting Report
Assets: 'The Process' has elite and dominating skill, energy, and athleticism for a 7-footer. Boasts great footwork in the paint at both ends, helping him block shots, pile up rebounds, and get high-percentage buckets. Hustles, and uses his fantastic wingspan to intimidate shooters. Also flashes a sweet and impressive shooting stroke.
Flaws: Durability has already been a big issue in his young career. Still foul-prone and turnover-prone, and must keep refining his skills and decision-making; still developing his fundamentals overall. Maturity has been questioned at times too, and he sometimes motivates the opposition with trash talking.
Career Potential: Potential superstar center or power forward, if healthy.
