Strengths: One of the new age, stretch 4 men, he has a great jumpshot for a man his size and is willing to play in the paint as well. Gets up and down the court pretty well. Isn’t the most explosive athlete, but goes hard to the basket when finishing at the rim. Shows some game with his back to the basket as well. Isn’t the greatest defender, but shows the effort and willingness to defend. His game is similar to Chris Bosh’s game.
Weaknesses: Has a reputation for not going hard at all times. Plays down to the level of lower competitors often. Needs to add weight and muscle to his frame in order to deal with NBA bigs.
