Scouting Report

AssetsBrings a unique combination of rebounding excellence and good shooting range to the power forward & center spots. Loves to mix it up inside but also plays a good perimeter game (which includes nice passing skills). Feisty, hustles, and can be a go-to scorer if needed.
FlawsFor such a big, physical player he isn't much of a straight-up defender (and sometimes seems more in position to rebound than to stop his man). Fouls are a problem, as is his tendency to get injured. Has had a very uneven career year-to-year.
Career potentialStreaky, aging big man with a very good inside-outside game.
