Scouting Report

AssetsHas the physical gifts to excel in the post: a 7-foot frame, good muscle mass, nice overall length, and good mobility. Pretty active on defense, working hard for blocks and rebounds.
FlawsHasn't shown a lot of progress in the NBA and may have entered the league too early; especially displays little skill in the offensive zone. Awful on free throws. Can get somewhat foul prone. Very injury prone.
Career potentialStreaky defensive center, when healthy.
