Scouting Report
Assets: 'The Unicorn' has truly rare tools: legitimate center height and length (he's well over 7 feet tall) yet also has the skills, mobility, and coordination of a small forward. An elite scorer who can shoot over top almost any defender, and a solid rebounder who is also a prolific shot-blocker. Handes the ball and runs like a guard, and hits the trey.
Flaws: Hasn't developed much of a back-to-the-basket offensive game yet (which hurts his field goal percentage). He's still very thin, and needs significant added muscle and overall mass to deal long-term with the pounding in the NBA post and to stay healthy. Foul-prone, and must keep working on his defensive timing.
Career Potential: Uniquely gifted big man with MVP-level talent.
