Scouting Report
Assets: Uncommonly nimble and coordinated for a legit 7-footer. Has a truly rare wingspan too (7-foot-9). Flashes nice quickness and hands, and flashes a fluid jump-shot for a big man. Can take his man to the hoop and also dish off with some reliability. Hits his free throws.
Flaws: Not the shot-blocker he could be, and is foul-prone. Very thin, and needs to bulk up to deal with NBA physicality in the paint; lacks the needed muscle mass to get great position as a rebounder at both ends of the floor.
Career Potential: Super-long, mobile vet rotational big man.
