Scouting Report
Brings a rare mix of size and athleticism. Very active as a defender, and can be a good scorer when on his game. Has excellent length (a seven-foot wingspan), helping him pile up blocks and steals. Effective scoring in the paint, and he regularly hits for high field-goal percentages. Pretty versatile too. Doesn't yet seem to have a true NBA position and is still somewhat inconsistent overall: plays like a star some games and disappears in others. Not a polished free throw shooter at all. Durability is an issue, and he needs to build up his frame to deal with the NBA grind.
Long Range Potential: Streaky but super-athletic combo forward, with starter tools.
