the paint and is a strong free-throw shooter (.830)...Decent rebounder, especially at the offensive end...Not a great athlete...Doesn`t possess enough lateral speed or quickness to be a starting small forward and isn`t big or physical enough to play power forward...Majority of opportunities in college came in overpowering weaker players...Not much of a defender...Lacks big upside but natural scoring ability makes him a solid value pick late in the draft.
