Scouting Report

Assets'D.J.' brings excellent length and a legit 7-foot frame to the low post. He's active as a shot-blocker and takes up a lot of space in the paint.
FlawsInjury-prone. Foul-prone, and still somewhat raw despite advancing age. Needs to be more of a rebounder, and his finer skills in general need work.
Career potentialJourneyman defense-first center.
