Scouting Report
A rare athlete for a player over seven feet tall. Possesses great leaping ability to go with his super-elite reach and wingspan, helping him play well above the rim. Runs the floor well, and shows good ball-handing, passing, and shooting tools. Hard-working (on and off the court): hustles, blocks shots, and is a team-first player. He's not yet a top-tier rebounder for a center, and he needs to add significant muscle to his frame to get the most from his great athleticism and length. He's additionally foul-prone, and can be more of a shot-blocker.
Long Range Potential: Raw but high-potential big man with unique versatility.
