Scouting Report

AssetsA rare athlete for a big-man: runs like a guard and can jump above most centers. His huge wingspan helps him dominate as a shot-blocker, ball-thief, and rebounder. Gets out on the wing and finishes with game-changing dunks.
FlawsInconsistent, and can be foul-prone. Attitude and ego have been significant issues, and he disappears for long stretches. A bit injury-prone. Needs to keep refining his fundamentals (especially his shooting stroke).
Career potentialInconsistent post player with elite athleticism.
