Scouting Report

AssetsA great athlete for a near-7-footer, with superb quickness. Boasts a huge wingspan and great hands, helping him pile up steals. Flashes a nice mid-range jumper when on his game.
FlawsFoul-prone, and not the rebounder or shot-blocker his talent & size suggest he could be. Injuries have been a nagging issue throughout his career. Needs to show more consistency in general at both ends of the floor.
Career potentialSometimes-dominant post player.
