Scouting Report
Assets: One of the NBA's elite shot-blockers. A supreme athlete for a big man: can out-run most guards and out-jump most forwards. When focused he works hard at both ends. Has a growing offensive repertoire and is a good passer. A very tough matchup due to his size, explosiveness, dexterity, and lefty shot.
Flaws: Not a good free-throw shooter at all and is streaky in general; needs work on focus and consistency. Sometimes loses composure when things aren't going well, and has had run-ins with coaches. Occasionally picks the big play over the efficient one.
Career Potential: Do-it-all superstar forward.
