Mara is an incredibly skilled and talented 7-3 center with great passing instincts and feel for the game.
He has a massive impact on both ends of the floor thanks to his great size, his presence in the lane and his ball skills.
He’s not the most mobile player but then again most 7-3 players aren’t super mobile. He does a good job of defending in the paint and at the rim, although he could stand to get stronger.
His passing skills really set him apart from most other centers. He surveys the floor and finds cutters and open shooters
Has a nice shooting touch from mid range and in. Dunks the ball with ease and scores in the paint over either shoulder.
