Scouting Report

AssetsAnchors the low post at both ends and is a gifted shot-blocker & rebounder. Feisty: battles for boards & second chances, and has nice hands for put-backs & short hooks. Possesses the game, approach, and massive wingspan of a true NBA pivot.
FlawsLacks explosiveness and foot-speed in the open court. Not a great leaper, so must lean heavily on his positioning and timing under the hoop. Needs to keep developing shooter, passing, and go-to offensive moves.
Career potentialSolid rotational center with upside.
