Strengths:
Youngest player at tournament at just 15 years old.
-Strong frame. Very thick legs. Long arms.
-Good scoring instincts
-Has some versatility already offensively
-Solid touch. Can finish with either hand
-Can put ball on floor a bit
-Good feel for the game. Finds open man
-Rebounds very well, especially on offensive glass.
-Makes extra pass
-Competitive kid. Ties on defense. Sets screens. Active on glass.

Weaknesses:
-Not particularly athletic at the moment. Plays below the rim
-Undersized. Around 6-7 or possibly 6-8.
-Frame may be maxed out? Doesn't seem to have a huge amount of physical growth left.
-Has a center's game, but is very undersized for that position
-Poor lateral quickness
-What kind of upside does he have defensively?

Outlook: Skilled and smart 15-year old who showed some nice ability relative to his extreme youth. Played up by nearly four years here in Crete, which is very impressive. Will he continue to grow? How much upside does he have long-term?
