Scouting Report

AssetsA skilled player with good fundamentals. Feisty, and battles under the hoop, with good length and bulk for the NBA post. Versatile, and hits his shots (from down low, from mid-range, and from the free-throw line). Doesn't make many mistakes.
FlawsFouls too easily. He's often miscast as a center due to his size and shooting, but doesn't bring ideal center defense or rebounding.
Career potentialQuality veteran depth big man.
