Overall Grade   A Well above average NBA player
Center

Premium front court talent with scoring/rebounding combo. Excellent around the basket. Uses his long arms and huge hands to create high percentage scoring opportunities. Touch with his right hand on the jump hook. Shifty and deceptive for a big man with the dribble. Likes to use spin moves in the post. Good footwork in tight spaces. Room to improve with the left hand. Very right hand dominant at this time. Physical on the boards. Positions his body well. Arm/hand length and plus glass instincts make the rebound tool elite despite not being an explosive jumper. Shot changer in the post. Struggles with his perimeter defense on the pick and roll. Lacks side to side foot quickness. Area to improve. Runs the court extremely well for a big man. Likes to get out on the fast break. Perimeter offense is improving. Still doesn't like to extend past 10-15 ft. Solid shooting stroke though. See the range improving to make him a Tim Duncan (early career) like threat offensively. Future top pick.

Never said I'd take him over Towns. Future 20-10 guy. Sticking to that.
