Strengths:


Terrific leaping ability, stunning length, and good timing make him a spectacular shot-blocker... Runs the floor very well for his size... Is a very good rebounder... Plays within a defined role and won't force shots on the offensive end... Still has significant upside left and may not be done growing.

Weaknesses:


Needs to gain weight... Can be taken advantage of by stronger bigs in the paint... Has an underdeveloped post game... Is a bit of a tweener; he's too frail to bang with 4s, but doesn't have the perimeter skills needed to play the 3... Has a poor jump shot... Doesn't get to the free-throw line with much frequency, and when he does, he shoots just 51 percent.
