Draft Notes

Has plenty of size, a legit 7-footer and decent mobility. Rebounds on the ball well and knows his role, as a rebounder and defender.

Does a lot of his scoring on put-backs and dump offs around the rim.

Can be a bit heavy-footed and doesn’t change directions particularly well, which could lead to trouble defending against NBA speed and in pick and roll situations.

Could be a one and done but might take a few years in college to develop.
