Moves well without the ball. Makes himself available off the ball. Has upside to finish either hand around the rim. Has solid hands. Good catch & finisher. Decent touch on floaters with the right hand. Can set the screens and dives to the rim. Mobile enough has good foot speed. At times showed flashes finishing with the left hand as well. Has solid upside as finisher around the rim.

Doesn’t use his mobility and speed enough, especially in open court game. Capable rim runner. Impressive offensive rebounder. Hard to box out, has nose for rebound. Will drive fouls during offensive rebounding.
Still not polish post up game but showed some upside in it. Decent touch on hook jumpers. Has solid up and under move. Can hold position and low post. Good post pin game.

Will score mid range jumpers. Good feel and stroke. Can pass a bit as well. Decent passer after short roll. Plays with head up.


Good footwork and speed in defense. Will give effort during post up defense. Can switch on ball screens and cover ground. Showed some flashes as rim protector but still he need to have better feel. Will hard hedge during P&R defense. Can also run on closeouts. 



Playing in youth teams showed some flashes handling the ball in playing from perimeter, anyhow didn’t have the role and freedom to do it on senior level. Also showed questionable decision making during straight line drives. Post up game really needs some work. Has feel but not polish at all. Strange footwork and coordination. Has upside but still needs development.

Has decent touch around the rim anyhow needs to be more consistent. Struggles to finish in traffic and vs contact. Needs to work on his coordination. Seems like a bit below the rim type of the big. Maybe has some untapped athletic potential but didn’t show it yet. Likes to finish with floaters, lacks some burst and explosiveness in catch & finish situations.  

Overall struggles playing in traffic. Shows his struggles once he about to operate with the ball and locate open teammates.  Not best passer and decision maker in crowd. Will make fouls when is about to set the screens.


Good footwork and mobility in defense. Anyhow below average anticipation in defense. Will hard hedge but will struggle getting back to his man. At times will hedge just to hedge will not stop the ball or put the pressure on ball-handlers. Struggles altering shots around the rim as weak side defender. Will be a step late and slow. At times will miss box outs.
