Scouting Report
Assets: Ultra-skilled and instinctive for a true center. A feisty, hard-working defender who can shut down opponents one-on-one, and one of the game's best passers out of the post. Shows improving low-post moves on offense and is an excellent free throw shooter for a center. Makes smart plays. Massive yet also pretty mobile.
Flaws: Despite his defensive excellence, he's not quite an elite rebounder nor shot-blocker. Won't stretch the floor with a 3-point shot. Can get foul-prone for stretches, in part because he's very physical but doesn't have explosive quickness. Durability is a challenge.
Career Potential: All-Star center with an instinctive two-way game.
