Scouting Report
Plays high above the rim. A good shot-blocker. Has good hands and the agility of a small forward. Usually takes care of the basketball. Has a massive wingspan (even for a 7-footer) and explosive athleticism. Brings above-average mobility for a center. Needs more bulk on his long, lanky frame. Can be a bit foul-prone. Must especially polish his mid-range game on offense and be a better shooter in general. Sometimes makes questionable decisions on the court, and maturity has been questioned.
Long Range Potential: Super-athletic shot-blocking center with consistency issues.
