Scouting Report
Assets: Brings uncommon intensity, energy, toughness, and grit to both ends of the floor. Scores well inside and has a long, strong frame. Mobile, with great hands. Knows how to get position in the post and really excels in a half-court game. Powers his way past most opponents. Has been dominant in Europe.
Flaws: Can be foul-prone, and his highly physical style takes a toll physically with regular minor injuries. Still has work to do in rounding out his offensive game (especially in expanding his shooting stroke to the perimeter). Not a top shot-blocker for a center.
Career Potential: Physical star center.
