Scouting Report
Assets: Excellent on the boards and a regular threat for double-digit rebounds. A true low-post player with a classic center's mentality: feisty and gritty, and loves mixing it up under the basket. Massive, mobile, and active defensively. Knows how to use his size to score in the low post, when called upon.
Flaws: Not much of a shot-blocker for a center. Inconsistent, in part because he's injury-prone and also because he's foul-prone. Still raw offensively, and like many centers is a poor free-throw shooter (and not at all a threat from the 3-point arc).
Career Potential: Good-rebounding true center.
