Scouting Report
Assets: He's uncommonly nimble and mobile for a true 7-footer, with especially great hands and coordination. He shows soft and superb touch around the basket, converting myriad short-range shots with either hand. Uses his timing and feisty focus to grab a high number of rebounds, and blocks his share of shots. Also a very good passer.
Flaws: He succeeds more by fundamentals and energy than by length and power in the post. While a legit 7-footer with good reach and athleticism, he's not explosive as a leaper. He also isn't particularly long of limb for his size. Needs to add more perimeter shooting to balance out his game.
Career Potential: Skilled two-way true center, with starter talent.
