Scouting Report
Assets: Has worked to become a top rebounder. Very mobile and athletic for an NBA post player: quick, nimble, and explosive. Employs nice footwork and moves to the hoop. Draws a lot of contact en route to the basket and shoots for a high field-goal percentage.
Flaws: Not the shot-blocker he could be. Somewhat undersized at center. Rarely passes the ball yet can be turnover-prone. Struggles with consistency at times, dominating some games and disappearing in others. Has bumped around the NBA and may still be looking for his niche.
Career Potential: Top-tier rebounding center or power forward, best off the bench.
