He doesnt fit the current big man fad, but he is an absolute insane athlete for his size and could be about as close to a DAJ lob threat as we have seen in quite some time. I dont think he has starter potential, but as a lob threat bully big who can protect the rim and grab tons of rebounds for 15mpg, I sorta like his chances. Will barely be 21 despite a 4 year college career too.
hack a shaq on deck...
his innability to make a ft is his biggest hurdle to being a rotation player, he obviously is paint limited as a defeder though too. the 7'7" wingspan and 9'4 sr confirmed at combine are great and although his standing vert and max vert are oddly nearly identical at 31 and 31.5" he can obviously cover ground up to top of backboard.What is intersting is his lane agility and shuttle time were the worst of centers tested yet he posted the fastest 3/4 q sprint of all the bigs tested that year.
Somebody will draft him late 2nd and he will be a low usage playoff team bruiser that maybe if the ft start falling could crack a rotation on a regular basis.
