Scouting Report

AssetsWorks hard in the paint to get rebounds and high-percentage looks (often dunks), especially on the offensive glass. A good athlete with a strong physique and a 7-foot-wingspan. Energetic and a great leaper who's regularly cutting to the hoop. Strong on the boards and a good shot-blocker.
FlawsCan get turnover-prone and foul-prone. Requires a lot of work on his passing, ball-handling, and shooting stroke (from the mid-range and the free throw line). Could do more to develop his back-to-the-basket moves in the halfcourt game.
Career potentialHigh-energy power forward with good athleticism.
