Scouting Report
Assets: A true 'stretch four:' he's dominant as a rebounder, and hits shots regularly from behind the 3-point arc. Has a feisty nature, is very instinctive in the paint, and he's a master of the outlet pass. A go-to scorer who can convert in a variety of ways, and hits his free throws. Has shown good clutch ability as well.
Flaws: Struggles at times finishing strongly at the hoop as a scorer. Not much of a shot-blocker for a big man, and occasionally gets into foul trouble defending some of the NBA's bigger, faster post players one-on-one. Somewhat injury-prone too.
Career Potential: Skilled star power forward or center.
