Overview
Super strong wing with a great build, a nice skill level and very high end athleticism. Doesn't have elite length and isn't an elite shooter but he's an aggressive scorer who knows how to take over a game.

Strengths
A powerful player who has the body to hold his own at the highest levels. Very strong for a wing but without sacrificing quickness. Can really elevate, especially considering his strength and weight.

Seems to know that he's the best player on the floor and steps up in big moments. Doesn't shy away from the spotlight.

Scores from all three levels.

Is a committed defender who can lock down his man and forces a lot of turnovers. Gets back in transition well and is an underrated rim protector. Can guard 3 positions.

A high level rebounder for a wing.

Weaknesses
Needs to improve from the free throw stripe and become a knock down three point shooter.

Isn't a great ball handler and can get sloppy with the dribble, especially in transition.

Doesn't have great length.

Comparisons
Reminds of Jerry Stackhouse.

Projection: lottery to mid first round pick in the 2018 NBA Draft
