Scouting Report
Possesses a truly rare combination of bruising size and top-tier instincts at center. Won't be overmatched by anyone size-wize and maximizes his power and length as a rebounder and shot-blocker. Also a superb passer out of the post and a smart, soft-handed scorer who hits his free throws. Can dominate with his all-round game. Doesn't stretch the floor with a 3-point shot. Can be more efficient overall: gets foul-prone on defense and turnover-prone on offense. A bit injury-prone too, so must show he can stay on the floor.
Long Range Potential: Bruising true center, with all-round All-Star tools.
