Strengths:


Is a skilled seven-footer with a good inside-outside game on the offensive end… Has a consistent midrange jumper and has flashed the ability to knock down shots from beyond the arc… Has a solid arsenal of moves and nice touch around the basket… Forces contact, getting to the line 6.7 times per game and knocking down 78.8% of his free throws… Doesn't force shots and rarely turns the ball over (1.7 TOPG)… Is a very good passer out of the high post – the Bucknell offense ran through him… Rebounds the ball well on both ends of the floor… Blocked 2.3 shots per game as a senior… Has no major holes in his game… Can likely step in and contribute to an NBA rotation right away.

Weaknesses:


Is not a great athlete and there are questions about how that will affect his jump from the historically unathletic Patriot League to the NBA… Lack of ideal foot speed makes him ill-suited for NBA defense, where being able to switch and hedge on pick and roll are important skills to have… Played in a very poor conference and was able to dominate largely because of his great size advantage… Doesn't have a very high ceiling, but can still be a very effective backup in the NBA, which is fine for a second-round prospect.
