Overview: A very long backup center who can do some nice things defensively. Good frame for his position, but it is his wingspan that helps him the most as a player. Runs the floor as well as almost any player his size, and shows pretty good leaping ability. Surprisingly quick feet. Doesnt bring much to the table offensively. Can score by playing hard, but cant create his own offense. No midrange game to speak of. Makes a living on the defensive end. Uses his length to alter shots when playing on the ball or when rotating over in help side. Long arms, solid frame, and leaping ability making him a pretty good rebounder as well. Did essentially the same things he does now during his four seasons at UCLA. Provides good depth due to his efficiency, but needs scorers around him to hide his lack of offensive skills.
Offense: A mediocre offensive post player who gets his offense almost exclusively from his effort off the ball. Does a very good job moving into position to grab offensive boards, getting into position to receive drive and dish passes, and rolling hard to the basket. Shows very little shooting touch, and his jumper simply isnt a part of his game. Proves to be a consistent finisher at the rim due to his athleticism and length. Does the little things on the offensive end to help it flow and seldom gets a play called for him. Runs the floor very hard and maintains a high energy level the entire time he is on the floor. Has essentially no discernable ball skills, but that isnt a requisite to be effective in his role.
Defense: A solid defensive player who can make an impact as a shot blocker. Makes an effort to contest as many shots as he can when hes on the floor. Often finds himself in foul trouble for that reason. Will get his hand on the ball pretty frequently when defending the paint. Decent rebounder. Uses his quickness to his advantage whenever he can.
