Scouting Report
Assets: Brings a rare combination of size and athleticism. Very active as a defender and is a good scorer. Has fantastic size and length for a swingman. Effective scoring in the paint and is developing a nice mid-range shooting game. Has a seven-foot wingspan (helping him pile up blocks and steals).
Flaws: Still somewhat raw overall (both in terms of skill-set and his physique). Inconsistent from the arc and from the free-throw line. Durability is already an issue, and he needs to build his physique up.
Career Potential: Super-athletic swingman prospect.
