So, after looking at all this. I don't see any huge gaping holes statistically besides the assist % but I guess you could see that coming. He looks like a good defender on paper and an amazing shot blocker for sure. His turnovers aren't very high though he isn't trying to pass much and doesn't get the ball a lot. His rebounding is pretty good too, especially on the offensive side. PER looks good as well. I know the eye test is important here but I feel like most of us only ever see him on Shaqtin-a-fool. Pretty sure the Blazers could take a crack at him and I don't think his contract will be really high. Also he is a decent guy, just a little weird and goofy but no crazy or detrimental stuff. But hey its Portland.
