2. He has HUGE hands (like Rondo, Shaq and Wilt).
This is harder to correct - He's going to have to make sure to hold the ball more loosely using a light flick of the wrist on his follow through. Less left hand on the ball.
3. Release point - on free throws he doesn't release the ball at the apex.

With a lot of practice hours he should be able to fix these issues. At best he should be a 70-75% free throw shooter, and have a respectable mid range game.

Yeah, he doesn't have any drastic flaws in his shot which is good. I doubt he has ever really put that much work into his jumper because he has always had such a big physical/skill advantage. Give him some time with NBA coaches and unrestricted practice time and he will be fine.
