Young developing player whose progress had been slowed down by the various injuries. Last year was injury free and he showed the promise to develop into a really good player. Very skilled player who can play with his back to the basket or facing the basket, exceptional passer who understands the game really well. Plays within a team concept and is sometimes, too unselfiush. His offense is far more developed at this stage. Needs to improve his defense, especially 1 - 1 post defense and be more dominant under the boards.Help side defense also needs work especially for a player of his size and physical potential. Works hard in practice and is a very coachable player.
