Size and skills allows him to play as SF and PF. Fill the lanes runs the floor very well. Good in attacking straight lines. Good off ball target makes weak side cuts. Plays above the rim. Can handle the ball a bit but mainly in transition.Can post up a bit but mainly in mismatch situations. Decent passer, sees the floor. Can probe and kick. 

Has solid size for defensive stopper. Can switch on ball screens. Has good footwork and can cover some ground. Will crash defensive glass. Plays with good motor. Not smooth shooter but at times can score some spot up jumpers. 


Really streaky shooter. Can score some spot ups when left alone but does need time to load and prepare. Ball doesn’t come out clean. Jumps forward during spot up jumpers. Bit mechanical and not so smooth shooting stroke. 

Struggles finishing in traffic vs length and sized defenders. Not best in turning the corner. Can’t create much. Can finish above the rim but at times doesn’t finish with authority at all. Good straight line driver but not shifty at all. 

Good size and solid footwork in defense. Anyhow lacks some degree of burst and effort in defense. Can alter jumpers but lot of times goes on fly by closeouts and can’t recover and cover ground. At times late on closeouts.
