Overview: A burly center with enough physical tools to be a decent backup on the NBA level. Has great size and bulk for an NBA center. Stills moves pretty well, but isn’t terribly explosive. Possesses the tools necessary to be a solid pro, but doesn’t always put them together. Shows some serviceably moves offensively, and knows how to use his weight. Blocks some shots due to his length. Was a highly touted recruit out of high school, and made an impact during his time at Colorado. Has had some issues off the court which may dictate his future, mainly with life-style choices. Effort has been questioned. Needs to show a commitment to improving his game and losing some weight if he wants to reach his peak as a player. Could find a better opportunity in free agency.
Offense: Gets the vast majority of his touches one-on-one in the post. Will find other opportunities by being active off the ball. Won’t take many jumpers. Shows a decent hook shot. Can finish with both hands. Raw post skills. Likes to turn right when he’s on the left block. Goes to the line at a good rate. Shoots an awful percentage. Good offensive rebounder. Gets quite a few putbacks. Shows a willingness to set good screens and move without the ball. Can’t put the ball on the floor. Rather turnover prone.
Defense: Does a good job defending the post due to his size. Will have a tough time defending quicker centers, but can match up against most players he is asked to guard. Does a good job rebounding his area, but has a hard time adjusting to offensive players crashing the glass. One of most foul prone players in the League. Doesn’t show good discipline. Needs to learn to go straight up. Could stand to lose some weight to improve his lateral quickness.
