Scouting Report
Capable of dominance at both ends of the floor; can pile up boards, dunks, and blocks. Possesses rare, jaw-dropping, explosive athleticism for a near-7-footer. Exceedngly fluid, quick, and coordinated for his size, an can run the floor like a guard. Has a huge wingspan and a powerful frame, and the overall the tools to be an All-Star. Curiously inconsistent game-to-game and week-to-week. Foul-prone, and needs to pick his spots better on defense. Still hasn't developed much of an outside shot at all, and still struggles for stretches on his free throws. Not much of a passer, and could be even more of a shot-blocker.
Long Range Potential: Explosively athletic big man, with inconsistency and All-Star talent.
