STRENGTHS

  • Very skilled at 6'10 and has the agility and coordination of a guard/wing

  • Must bulk up and get stronger to play the 4

  • Struggles playing and finishing through contact

  • Seems to have balance issues but could be related to lack of strength

  • Shot selection; takes (and makes) a lot of tough and questionable shots

  • Heavy isolation player

  • Not much of a creator for others

  • Must improve 3 point shooting and range to have an NBA role

  • Jack of all trades and master of none
