Aggressive offensively using his length to go inside against smaller players … Has a decent midrange game and some polished moves going to the basket … Has good length, long wing span … Solid rebounder … Stays with in his comfort zone, doesn't try to do too much or get out of control … Improved defensively showing the ability to pick up a fair number of steals … His overall feel for the game is solid.
