Scouting Report

AssetsHas a very big frame and knows how to use it to get position in the NBA paint. Has good mobility for his size. Flashes solid hands & footwork, and has a few nifty offensive post moves.
FlawsFoul-prone. Inconsistent and has never quite lived up to his athletic potential. Somewhat injury-prone and wears down fairly easily. Not the rebounder or shot-blocker he could be.
Career potentialJourneyman post player.
