Scouting Report
Assets: Dominant in the post at both ends of the floor. Shows a real nose for rejecting shots and is a prolific rebounder with great hands. Efficient: will steal the ball on 'D,' take care of it on offense, and limit his fouls. A former guard who can hit from mid-range offensively, pass well, and play with surprising agility.
Flaws: Still a bit lacking in bulk for a post player, which leads to a lot of contact and some proneness to injury (so he must show he can stay healthy). While a good shooter with an accurate stroke, he's still developing his consistency on perimeter attempts.
Career Potential: Super-elite post player and perennial MVP candidate.
