Scouting Report
Has great size, physicality and leadership qualities. Can play a shutdown role with aplomb. Displays untapped all-around ability, as well, especially because of a good point shot. Must prove capable of staying healthy over the long haul, since he has battled both injury and illness during his formative years. Will drop the gloves but needs more work in that area.
Long Range Potential: Big, talented and physical defender with a little upside.
