Scouting Report
Assets: Smooth, quick, and skilled for a big man. Possesses a center's length yet has the overall game of a small forward. Shows good instincts & quickness to score over and around opponents. Has a nice shooting stroke. Runs the floor like a guard. Flashes solid defensive upside.
Flaws: Raw overall. Doesn't make nearly as much use of his great length and reach as he could, especially defensively. Lacks muscle mass and can be pushed around in the post, limiting him as a rebounder and shot-blocker. Could be more of a passer considering his hands.
Career Potential: Raw but athletic combo forward with all-round upside.
