Nice blend of physical tools at 6-10 size and 7-2 wingspan with 8-11 standing reach. Pretty good lob target for guards. Can load off of two feet. Has good bounce. Runs the floor very well. Keeps the plays alive and can protect the rim. Has some versatility in his game. Can score mid range jumpers. Will post up using fade away jumpers or going at the rim. When has time to load can score some 3 point jumpers as well. Solid touch on baby hook jumpers. 

Has solid defensive impact on the game. Length and agility allows him to impact the game on defensive end of the court. Mobile enough can cover ground, has solid footwork. Can even protect the rim a bit. Can crash the glass. 


Struggles meeting physicality around the rim. Doesn’t respond well vs contact. Not best decision maker, at times can only see the basket but not open teammates. Will always force fade away jumpers during post up game, even in mismatch situations. 

Capable spot up shooter for 3 points but really needs time to prepare. Better mid range jumpers compare to long range. Long range shooting still needs lot of work. 

Can have good defensive impact but weak side defense needs some improvement. Doesn’t read the game well. Reacts on fakes. Will miss closeouts from weak side. Effort comes and goes. Needs to be motivated in order to give effort in defense.
