Scouting Report
Assets: Uncommonly explosive for a big man, and he has the physique to dominate in the paint as a rebounder and as an offensive finisher. He's super-quick and nimble for his size, and a constant threat for alley-oops and put-backs. Very active, energetic, and smart. He additionally is a good ball-handler, and can hit the open 3-pointer. A lefty.
Flaws: Although explosive and strong he's limited defensively by a lack of top-tier arm length, and he especially doesn't provide much as a rim protector. Like many big men he struggles with consistency as a free throw shooter (an issue made more acute by his low-post style that draws a lot of fouls). Can pass the ball more.
Career Potential: Bruising, explosive power forward with some star potential.
