Scouting Report
Impressively accurate for a center shooting the 3-pointer. Has a quick, smooth release and is hard to guard on the perimeter thanks to his 7-foot frame and long arms. He's an excellent shot-blocker too, showing great timing and anticipation. Passes solidly too. Works hard on and off the court. Also very smart and mature. His below-average explosiveness and muscular bulk pose challenges in isolation defense against bigger, faster opponents, and especially keep him from excelling as a rebounder. While a good perimeter scorer he's not quite adept at creating his own shot in one-on-one offensive situations.
Long Range Potential: Skilled, smart, sweet-shooting 7-footer, with good depth center potential.
