Scouting Report
Assets: Towering and dominant as a rim protector. Can put up prodigious shot-blocking and rebounding numbers. Boasts a truly rare wingspan and reach (even for a true 7-footer) yet is highly nimble and quick for his size. Has nice hands around the hoop offensively too, with some solid go-to moves. Hits for a high field goal percentage. A team leader.
Flaws: Still streaky for stretches, in part because he doesn't have great bulk on his frame and takes a lot of pounding in the paint. Offensively he doesn't draw defenders away from the basket with his jumper, and he isn't much of a passer nor free-throw shooter (yet).
Career Potential: Uniquely dominant defensive anchor in the post.
