Scouting Report
Makes his living in the low post: mobile and energetic, and hustles hard to defend the rim. Shoots for a very high percentage from the floor, as he's always around the hoop and flashes nice touch around the basket. Runs the floor well for a big man. Also brings quiet leadership on and off the court. Gets into foul trouble too readily, hurting his overall game and playing time. Lacks ideal mass for a post player, somewhat limiting his efforts as a rebounder and shot-blocker. Inconsistent with his shooting stroke (from outside and at the free throw line). Can be much more of a passer.
Long Range Potential: Gritty, capable rotational vet big man.
