WHAT HE HAS: decent athlete…solid on the glass, excellent on the offensive glass…has range, can not be left alone on perimeter…quick in transition…loves to play in the clutch…

WHAT HE NEEDS TO IMPROVE: overall level of aggressiveness on defense…ball-handling, especially cross-over moves…creating his own shot when under pressure…

COMPARISON: Chief of Philadelphia 76ers scouting Courtney Witte has reportedly compared him to Argentinian G/F Carlos Delfino in 2010 because of his overall stature/movements.


vs Regal Barcelona: he showcased his offensive potential by scoring 26 points on 10-18 shooting from the field. At this point, when we all know that he can drive by or shoot over his defender, he is starting to fascinate with his ability to play the point, cross-over defenders at will and create some great looks for his open teammates. To make his team more competitive and effective he needs to get rid of the ball faster on certain occasions  and try to exploit his vertical leap superiority more on the offensive boards – 26-11-2010
