Scouting Report
Assets: A fantastic pure scorer. Has a center's length and hits from all over the offensive zone. Rarely misses a free throw. Deceptively strong driving to the hoop and can leap over most post players. A good rebounder and passer too, and a clutch go-to guy who can carry his team for stretches. He has additionally worked to become a top-tier shot blocker.
Flaws: Spotty at times on the defensive end, and needs more muscle on his still-thin frame considering all the minutes he plays and all the contact he draws. A bit injury-prone. Can be better at protecting the ball during his dribble to prevent turnovers.
Career Potential: Superstar combo forward and perennial MVP candidate.
