Scouting Report
Assets: A true 7-footer who's a very good rim protector. Highly nimble and coordinated for his size, and very energetic; can run the floor like a swingman, and is pretty athletic. Regularly finishes with big dunks on put-backs and alley-oops. Good on the offensive boards, thanks to excellent quickness.
Flaws: Offensively limited, due to a lack of scoring instincts, skill, and touch. Highly inconsistent as a shooter--even close to the bucket--and not much of a passer. Needs to add significant muscle mass to his frame in order to reach his defensive potential and put up with the NBA low-post pounding.
Career Potential: Nimble, athletic, defense-first rotational big man.
