Scouting Report
Assets: One of the most skilled, instinctive, efficient big men on the planet. He's an elite shooter from both the 3-point arc and on free throws, and can carry his team as a scorer. He's also more than capable of playing a traditional center role (since he's an elite rebounder) but he passes like a guard and can handle the ball like a wing.
Flaws: While he usually plays at center he isn't much of a rim protector / shot-blocker, so he may be more suited to power forward. He can get foul-prone against certain opponents on defense, and can be a bit streaky as a scorer.
Career Potential: Unique, elite all-round center or power forward.
