NBA Comparison: N/A

Simon Dresden - 2/15/2008

Strengths: Consistency is his calling card as he always gives his team some points and an equal share of rebounds while being a capable shot blocker at the Euroleague level (should be able to be a solid shot blocker at the NBA level as well) ... Center seems to be his natural position as he loves playing with his back to the basket possessing a good assortment of moves to get his shot off ... He is a tenacious rebounder going for the offensive boards as well as wiping the defensive glass ... A late bloomer who has progressed considerably over the last 2 years. He possesses a good reach and good hands, and his frame appears to be able to add weight ...

Weaknesses: To play at the NBA level, he has to work on his body as he is thin by NBA center standards ... He does not possess the skill set to make up for his good but not excellent size and probably is a little un-athletic to go down to the four slot. Lacks a great shot from beyond the paint area. Must extend his range ... Too right hand dependant. Should look to improve his use of his left hand ... A poor free throw shooter at below 50%. Must improve upon this to become an effective scorer ... His progression over the past 2 years gives him a lot of hope, but he will need to continue to work hard and bulk up and improve his shooting and skill level.

Notes: Had a great season for his Turkish club that opened up some eyes and when Fenerbahce offered him to play at Europe's highest level on a consistent basis he jumped at the opportunity. Thrown into the fire right away he played from gameday 8 on to the end of the regular season.
