NBA comparison : Kenyon Martin/Montrezl Harell
Tremendous athlete who uses his running/jumping ability on both ends of the floor. Plays with a lot of energy, dunks the ball every time he can, runs the floor hard on the fast break. Quick leaper and very good finisher around the rim. Has one gove to move, his spin to finish with his right hand. Defense may be his best asset, one of the best shot blockers in college basketball. Footspeed allows him to defend multiple positions and switch on D. High character player whose tenacity will help him grab some spots in the draft.
Undersized for the NBA game. More of a small ball five than a four. Lacks the adequate outside shot and handles to play the four. Scored mostly on offensive rebounds, cuts and fast breaks. Also one of the oldest first round prospects. Will turn 23 before the start of the next NBA season so limited room to improve.
