Offense: A crafty, versatile offensive player who has really come into his own. Has a high basketball IQ and supreme size at his position.

Likes to pull up when driving right. Not a very good finisher at the rim. Lacks the strength to lay the ball in with contact. Gets to the line at a decent rate. Shoots a very respectable percentage. Great ball handler and passer for his size. Will drive and dish periodically. Will get a little bit too aggressive with his dribble sometimes. Isnt strong enough to recover the ball when he loses it. Very nice offensive option.
Defense: A heady defensive player who doesnt have the physical assets to be a standout, but is big and smart enough to get by. Displays good help side fundamentals. Reads ball handlers extremely well when he is playing off the ball. Will make an effort to use his length to deny penetration, but he is susceptible to both quicker and stronger players. Wont leak out in transition. Does his best to help with rebounding duties. Very disciplined defender. Not dynamic, but wont make many mistakes either.
