Scouting Report
A team-first player who's mature and unafraid to do the dirty work. Very physical and active in the low post: battles hard for rebounds, protects the rim, takes high-percentage shots, and brings great energy. Pretty efficient with the ball too, and has solid (if streaky) form on his mid-range stroke. Despite excellent defense he can get foul prone, and he's not a top-tier shot-blocker for a big man. Lacks much offensive skill, with little outside shooting range (and he isn't much of a passer at all). Below-average on his free throws.
Long Range Potential: Physical, above-average defensive post player.
