Notes:
A very raw talent, has not been playing basketball very long, but has great potential thanks to his body type ... Must develop an offensive repertoire outside of the paint ... Willing to run the floor in transition, heading to both ends of the floor ... Demonstrates quick feet and strong rebounding ability, but must be more aggressive as a shot-blocker and refine his defensive skills given his size ... Rather lazy on defense, allowing opponents to get too deep into the paint and then commits weak fouls to make up for slow response ... With ACB during 2013-14, averaged a mere 6.1 ppg as he attempted just over four field goals per outing ... Responsible for 6.9 rpg in 21.3 minutes per contest.
