Ceiling is Juwan Howard, which is a really nice career.
Tend to think he's more Kurt Thomas.
I think you are underrating his rebounding a bit. He has a natural ability to get up there and get them, which sometimes has little to do with athleticism or length and more to do with timing and a natural intangible.
I have serious questions about his scoring ability on the next level, but I do think that he will continue to be a very good rebounder... Which is a nice thing to have and something Kurt Thomas never could provide.
Sullinger is going to be a double-double guy on the next level, imo. My biggest question is will it be 15/10 or 20/10.
