Scouting Report

AssetsAn intense competitor and an enthusiastic defender. Passes well for a big man and has a nose for steals. Doesn't back down from anyone and provides grit and even intimidation in the paint. A veteran who has been around the NBA and knows what it takes to win.
FlawsHas a long history of injuries and is no longer the explosive, above-the-rim dominator he once was. Not the rebounder his athleticism suggests he should have been. Struggles at the free-throw line. Sometimes his intensity overflows, leading to technical fouls and distractions.
Career potentialAging veteran talent at power forward, when healthy.
