Scouting Report
Assets: An elite and gifted rebounder and defender, thanks to fantastic effort, energy, athletic ability, and a huge wingspan. Can dominate in the paint with tenacity on the boards and shot-blocking ability. Has the foot-speed and quickness to fill the lane on the break. A high-character leader.
Flaws: Lacks ideal height for the NBA block, which can be an issue against some dominant offensive big men. Not very well-rounded as a scorer and isn't much of a shooter (from the free-throw line or perimeter); mostly focuses on easy buckets and put-backs. Could be much more of a passer.
Career Potential: Above-average defensive power forward.
