Strengths:
-Good size for a power forward at 6-9 with above average length
-Has a solid frame that should fill out
-Good athlete. Quick. Bouncy. Can play above the rim with ease. Threw down some very impressive dunks at the U19s
-Great offensive rebounder. 4.6 per-40 at U19s. 8.5 per-40 at FIBA U18 Asia last summer. Very active on glass.
-Good in transition. Runs floor well. Can handle ball in open court a bit
-Made a handful of 3-pointers in the tournament (7/21 in 7 games), showing he might have some potential here to improve in the future. Touch isn't bad. Made 71% of free throws
-Plays with good energy and spirit
-Uses long arms, quickness and solid anticipation skills to get in the passing lanes consistently (3 steals per-40 in Crete)

Weaknesses:
-Not very polished offensively. Gets most of his offense running the floor, crashing offensive glass, playing off the ball
-Doesn't have a consistent means of scoring
-Shooting stroke is not very pretty. Heaves ball at basket.
-Rudimentary ball-handler
-Doesn't have much of a post-game
-Feel for game is average. Shot-selection, decision making can be questionable at times. Plays mostly off his instincts
-Fundamentals on defense are poor. Gambles wildly. Not a rim protector. Struggles stepping out to the perimeter. Very upright in stance. Just kind of flies around on defense.

Outlook: One of the best rebounders at the U19s. Had two games of 20+ rebounds. Found ways to score as well. Not exceptionally talented for the highest levels, but has good physical tools and is fairly productive.
