Second Round

Tremendous length for a power forward with a 7-4 wingspan. Has the physique to add mass. An average type athlete. Has struggled with injuries in high school, including an ACL injury. Has a soft shooting touch and a high release. Loves to catch facing and is a danger as a trailing stretch four-man. Shoots the ball comfortably from behind the arc. Extremely dangerous catching in the midrange. Sets up his play with a threatening jab step. Has quality foot work. Pivots well in the post. Can get to the rim with a couple dribbles. Can finish with either hand. Needs to develop strength as a finisher in traffic. Sees the floor well and can deliver the timely pass. Comfortable handling the ball in open court but is not necessarily a playmaker. Is a positional defender who knows how to use his strength. Lateral quickness is a question and he is not a big leaper.
