Scouting Report

AssetsExtremely energetic and athletic for a big man. Loves playing above the rim and can dominate as a shot-blocker. Will fill the lane and go for big dunks and does a great job in general of converting high-percentage buckets. Feisty, hustles hard, and always provides a spark.
FlawsLacks ideal bulk for the NBA post, which limits him as a rebounder and affects his durability. Not an offensive playmaker who will create shots on the block. Some very serious off-court issues have threatened his career in the past.
Career potentialHigh-energy shot-blocking big man.
