Scouting Report

AssetsUncommonly mobile, agile, and skilled for a 7-footer. Has some range on his jumper and a sweet, fundamentally-sound stroke. A good leaper who will block his share of shots and get a good number of boards (with playing time). Plays like an all-round star for stretches.
FlawsWill often play too much of a perimeter game and doesn't take full advantage of his 7-foot frame; settles for too many mid-range jumpers, which affects his shooting percentages. Is occasionally passive, and can disappear for stretches. Doesn't pass much. A bit prone to injuries.
Career potentialInconsistent power forward with star potential.
