Scouting Report

Assets'The Custodian' lives up to his nickname by working hard and doing the dirty work. A quietly polished all-round player: passes well, has good shooting range, and can score when needed. A leader in the locker room.
FlawsNot a great athlete and is somewhat injury-prone. Good in several areas on the court, but not great in any. With age, has become less able to get high-percentage buckets. Has been inconsistent throughout his career.
Career potentialVeteran depth forward & good locker-room presence.
