Scouting Report
Assets: Very skilled and nimble for a near-7-footer. Has a scorer's mentality, and uses his great length to shoot over opponents. Has the hands to shoot and pass like a guard, and can hit the 3-pointer. Shows nice fluidity, mobility, and court savvy. Capable of playing several NBA positions.
Flaws: Significantly lacks strength and muscle mass, which limits him as a rebounder and gets him targeted by opponents on 'D' at times. Doesn't take enough high-percentage shots. Requires a lot of bulking up to deal with the NBA grind and pounding.
Career Potential: Talented but inconsistent small forward with starter upside.
