Handles the ball comfortably and can attack the basket by repelling the threat of his outside shot. Likes to finish a two-way rotation of his workouts. Can end with either hand. Is a solid rebounder who will only get better in this and other areas with added strength expected. More of a finisher than a passer at this point. Has the potential to be a strong defender at post and on the perimeter as a great man. Like his advantage as a stretched four who is comfortable with the ball in his hands.
