Scouting Report

AssetsAn almost-7-footer with top athleticism. Runs the floor well and has great shooting range for a man his size. Handles the ball well enough to play some shooting guard. Works hard.
FlawsHas had major injury woes early in his career. Lacks bulk and isn't much of a rebounder at near-seven feet. Sometimes plays on the perimeter too much.
Career potentialSolid reserve swingman with starter tools.
