Scouting Report
Assets: 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. Regularly jumps over opponents for big dunks and rebounds, and can be a prolific shot-blocker. Handes the ball and runs like a guard, and can hit the trey. Works hard. Shows clutch ability.
Flaws: Hasn't developed much of a back-to-the-basket offensive game yet. 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 timing.
Career Potential: Uniquely gifted big man with All-Star tools.
