i don't consider him a decent passer right now, he tends to tunnel vision and beat assist anti-records when he's facing strong opponents. he becomes decent when he plays bad opponents, it's probably an issue of confidence and taking time.
i expect him to be very frustrating with turnovers for the first year or a few.

but turnover prone big men who have good hands when it comes to rebounding also tend to develop a lot. so hopefully one day he does get 1.5-2 apg.
for now, i expect Tyson Chandler-esque.
