2001 Scouting Report:
Strengths: Big strong player who unlike most European players likes physical contact in the lane ... Gains position on the blocks and most importantly keeps it thanks to his good footwork ... Plays well with back to the basket ... Has a couple of solid offensive moves such as a hook shot and a short 8-foot jumper ... Descent rebounder who has long arms and because of body strength is very good at sealing off his main to get in position for rebounds ... Has shown the ability to dribble the ball something that will help him in the NBA ... Solid free throw shooter which really helps due to the fact that he plays such a physical game he visit the free throw line often ... Average athlete who will most importantly take up space in the paint for a team that might be thin in the middle ...

Weakness: Not what one would call a shot blocker just doesn't have that explosive leaping ability to be a standout in that area ... Unless he gets the ball on the blocks he can be ineffective offensively as his game doesn't consist of any perimeter shots ... Will struggle a little on defense as his lateral quickness is a step too slow for the NBA ... Average runner on the court isn't what I would call a speedster more of a willing runner ... Has a tendency to pick up dumb fouls due to his below average fundamentals defensively ... Needs to work on getting comfortable facing the basket offensively ... Could stand to add about 10 more pounds of weight ...
