Strengths:


Is a freakishly long and athletic player... Similar size/speed combo to that of Kevin Durant... Is great in transition... A surprisingly good ball-handler... Still has loads of untapped potential... Could potentially defend all five positions on the floor... Is a matchup nightmare for opponents... Is a versatile scorer, can go inside and outside... Has terrific footwork in the paint... Has a great first step and long strides help him blow by opponents... Runs the floor very well... Is an excellent finisher.

Weaknesses:


Is the quintessential boom-or-bust prospect... Lacks strength, despite huge frame; has added weight since college season ended, though... Can coast on his unbelievable athleticism and doesn't have a polished outside game... Shys away from contact inside and too often relies upon finesse... Is not a willing enough defender, despite having the tools to be great in that regard... Is an inconsistent scorer who lacks a go to move... Needs to become a better rebounder... Has tendencies to go long stretches without affecting the game... Needs to work on mid-range jumper... Still does not have a "feel for the game"...
