Scouting Report

AssetsA polished post player. Very coordinated for his size and shows excellent body control. Shoots the ball well for a big man (and is excellent from the free-throw stripe) thanks to a smooth, consistent stroke. Has improved as a shot-blocker and rebounder.
FlawsNot very explosive or powerful in the paint (and isn't very long-armed for a near-7-footer). Despite good overall fundamentals he needs to be less foul-prone. Could pass out of the post much more.
Career potentialSkilled offensive center with average physical tools.
