Size and touch helps him to finish around the rim. Has solid
touch on his right hand hook jumpers. Uses spin moves on each side of the low
block. With time and space capable finisher with the left hand. Post up is
25.1% of his game. Even though he only scores 0.698 PPP via post ups, he
demonstrated he has good touch around the rim.

Decent interior scorer. Can score out of pick and roll. Scores
1.128 PPP as pick and roll man. Has good touch on floaters. Crafty enough
around the rim. Moves well without the ball.

Can score some mid range jumpers,  44% FG , with 0.889 PPP per game. Has 61% from
free throw line. At times can score some 3 PTS, but still needs ti develop his
outside jumpers. Anyhow good shooting upside for a player his size.

Showed good upside on passing ability as well. Averages 2.3
assists per game. Best passing comes as short roll target after pick and roll
game. Can make some perimeter passes also. Averages 0.15 AST per possessions
and has 0.16 AST/FGA ratio.

Averages 11.1 rebounds per game, 2.4 offensive rebounds per
game.. Has solid feel for defensive glass. Averages 29% of whole team rebounds.
Uses his size to get to the glass. Can defend a bit thanks to his size. At
times can protect the paint and alter jumpers and layups.


Not best finisher vs contact. More uses his size then strengths around the rim. Doesn’t move defender. Take far away hook jumpers compare to bring defenders back to the basket. Better right hand finisher compare to left hand.

Not very mobile laterally. Can only play one type of pick and roll defense. He is always in drop during pick and roll defense. Also not best vertically, can alter shots at times but can get easily scored on. Can’t switch on ball screens and slow to hedge. At times not very fast in transition defense as well. Average on ball defender also. Gets moved off the spots during post ups. Guards goes by him during perimeter defense.
