Scouting Report

AssetsUses his exceptional height, reach, and anticipation to dominate as a shot-blocker. Contests everything: active, aggressive, and mobile under the basket and likes to play under the hoop. Flashes a nice back-to-the-basket game, with a good hook shot. Has solid hands and can hit the face-up mid-range jumper.
FlawsDespite good footwork he's not particularly athletic, and he also significantly lacks bulk on his frame for the NBA post. Isn't the rebounder he might be due to his light frame. Not much of a passer, and won't stretch defenses with a consistent outside shot.
Career potentialMobile shot-blocking center with starter tools.
