Defensively he won't ever be great on stopping his guy but with his length he can alter and block some shots.
Well if he can get back to 8+ rebounds a game he will be fine but 6 rpg from a 7 footer with that much skill and upside is downright unacceptable. I think he's got the talent to definitely be a 24 ppg scorer for a couple seasons.
