He has developed into a very good player who plays with a lot of energy and heart. Very active big man that can run the floor extremely well. Fundamentally sound. Rebounds, passes well, scores and blocks shots. If left open, he can also knock down the 15 foot jump shot with consistency. Slender build. Must improve strength to reach full potential. Once rated as a top 5 high school center in the country behind such notable current NBA centers Tyson Chandler & Eddie Curry. Made Chicago Bulls summer league squad that featured Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah & Tyrus Thomas. Solid overseas resume that includes back to back championships with two different teams.
