Scouting Report
An all-round solid offensive big man: quick and agile for a 7-footer and can score in a variety of ways. Will stretch defenses with his shooting stroke, and is an exceptional passer for a pivot. Can fill the lane and get to the hoop for dunks and put-backs. Hustles. Not the long, strong defensive force NBA teams look for in a center; may be limited to power forward as a pro. While nimble he's not a top-end athlete. Somewhat limited as a shot-blocker and doesn't have the raw bulk to dominate on the boards.
Long Range Potential: Skilled, gritty, offensively-talented big man.
