Overall Grade   A+ Elite, highest level NBA player
Power Forward

Skilled 7 footer with NBA 3 point range. Prototype stretch 4. Not super explosive but athletic for size, good feet, runs the floor. Polished player for age. Handles the ball well for a big man. Can put the ball on the deck and drive toward rim with ability to finish with either hand. Very good catch and shoot ability from deep already, quick, high release. Lean but has a good set of shoulders on him, has present strength and can add to it. Gets off the floor OK but will need more strength to improve on glass vs. more athletic and physical players. More of a face up player right now but has post potential and the skills to develop a plus mid range game. Dirk Nowitzki ceiling.

Indeed looks polished. 7 footer with perimeter shooting is a welcome addition to the Cats.

I feel good about it. I think I'm a little light on his athleticism. He may have a higher ceiling on scoring ability too.
