Scouting Report
A top-tier rebounder and a very good scorer in the post. Can be a go-to point-getter for his team, and dominates the boards (helping his scoring with put-backs and easy buckets). Hits his free throws. Has a classic NBA center's build (including a good wingspan and a massive frame) with good mobility. Possesses untapped talent defensively. Plays more like a power forward than a true pivot. Not a top-tier defender (yet) for a center, and would benefit by being more of a shot-blocker. Can use added bulk to his frame to deal with NBA post opponents, and to help with his durability issues.
Long Range Potential: Excellent offensive center and above-average rebounder.
