Scouting Report

AssetsReally excels as a defender: uses his huge wingspan and quickness to corral high totals of steals, blocks, and rebounds. Good at getting to the hoop offensively on drives, and finishes authoritatively. Has the hands to be a good outside shooter and passer. Positionally versatile.
FlawsMust keep developing his shooting stroke, ball-handling, and overall one-on-one scoring moves. Struggles with consistency, especially as a shooter (and is still streaky overall). Would benefit by improving his free throw shooting.
Career potentialAthletic defensive combo forward, with untapped all-round potential.
