Scouting Report
Possesses great hands and basketball instincts for a center. Makes smart decisions with the ball in the post, showing superb and polished footwork and ball-handling for his size. Creates his own shot (with some range) and facilitates for teammates too. Hustles, dominates the boards, and has enough size to start at center. While an elite rebounder, he struggles at times with defensive assignments due to his average athleticism. He's foul-prone, in part because he's not explosive or fast (and somewhat lumbers up and down the court). Also doesn't have ideal length for a post player, so relies more on his awareness, skill, and smarts.
Long Range Potential: Instinctive center or power forward, with some star potential.
