Scouting Report

AssetsA tough, elite defensive center: uses his excellent wingspan, size, and quickness to dominate as a rebounder and man defender. Very mobile at over seven feet, with the agility and feet of a small forward; can both run the floor and post up. Has good hands & timing for alley-oops. Hits for a very high field-goal percentage.
FlawsNot the shot-blocker he could be. Somewhat limited offensively, especially in creating his own shot in the post. An average free-throw shooter. Has struggled with injuries throughout his career.
Career potentialAll-NBA defender at center.
