Scouting Report

AssetsUses his long, fluid frame pretty effectively at both ends of the floor. Excels setting screens on the pick-and-roll. Gets his hands up on defense and will actively body and mirror his man to disrupt the offense. Very mobile for a 7-footer and runs the floor pretty well.
FlawsHighly foul-prone and not much of a shot-blocker despite his great size and length. Needs more back-to-the basket moves on offense, and much more polish on his mid-range game. Would benefit as a rebounder from added bulk on his frame.
Career potentialSolid center with some upside.
