NBA DRAFT ANALYSIS: Surprising mobility for a man his size...Able to run the court with shocking speed for a power forward...Very intense player who welcomes physical play...Solid interior game and does a great jump finishing in the paint...Above average court vision which makes it easy for him to beat double teams...Nice ball-handling ability and also has a mediocre mid-range jumper...His post game could use some improvements...Sometimes plays too aggressive, particularly at the defensive end...His emotions boil over far too easily...Does not perform well with his back to the basket...An intriguing prospect nonetheless.
