its his ballhandling skills at that size which is huge for a forward like him, plus he has a solid jumpshot and people are already marking him as the next durant. However I thought he was gonna be big, but right now im skeptical if he even makes the 1st round just because he was mediocre at the NCAA level and that, despite his size, does not have the strength to compete defensively with power forwards.
