Scouting Report

AssetsA skilled big-man who can hit the three with regularity. Hits his free-throws as well. Takes good care of the ball on offense. A solid citizen and savvy vet who can fill in capably at all three frontcourt spots.
FlawsA shooting guard in a power forward's body; doesn't rebound or block shots much at all. Doesn't hit for a good field-goal percentage for a man his size. Lacks a true niche in the NBA.
Career potentialDepth veteran frontcourt player.
