Scouting Report
Assets: A strong, athletic two-way player who does a bit of everything well. He's an especially good defender, piling up rebounds and blocks. Very efficient. A capable scorer too, and he takes smart shots. Has the height to succeed at guard or forward, and he's pretty strong and well-built for a wing (with fantastic length and excellent standing reach).
Flaws: Offensively he needs to keep refining his game. His outside shooting stroke is streaky, and he can be much more of a passer. He additionally lacks big hands for ball handling and passing.
Career Potential: Athletic two-way wing with starter tools.
