Scouting Report

AssetsA true post player. Very active, quick, and physical in the paint at both ends of the floor. Rebounds well and blocks his share of shots, while showing nice awareness and footwork in the low post. A battler who will get his teammates fired up. Has a lot of energy for a big man but manages to stay out of foul trouble.
FlawsNeeds a lot of work on his mid-range shooting stroke so he can better stretch defenses. Not much of a passer at all. Not the go-to scorer he might be because of his limited offensive repertoire. Despite very long arms he is somewhat undersized for a player with a center's game.
Career potentialAthletic, energetic low-post player with a little upside.
