Scouting Report
Assets: 'Boogie' is dominant in the post, both offensively and as a rebounder. Long and powerful, and rules the boards. Can consistently overpower opponents at both ends. Passes well for a center and fills the lane impressively, while flashing nice shooting range. Agile, coordinated, and skilled for a guy with his massive frame.
Flaws: Unnecessarily physical and chippy, contributing to his tendency to be hugely foul-prone and turnover-prone. Obviously needs to rein in his overall game (especially his shot selection, although he brings solid shooting range). Has faced regular questions about his conditioning, maturity, and attitude. Injury-prone too.
Career Potential: Erratic All-Star center.
