Scouting Report
Assets: Dominant defensively: controls games as a rebounder and shot-blocker with his hard work, mobility, and feisty focus. Team-first, and one of the game's best-passing big men. Very long, athletic, and energetic. A competitor who brings excellent intensity and leadership ability.
Flaws: Limited as a scorer (especially as a shooter, due to his highly awkward shooting form). Awful on free throws. His slim frame has taken a lot of punishment in the NBA post and he's injury-prone. Sometimes his intensity overflows into cockiness.
Career Potential: Elite but declining defensive center (when healthy).
