Well, he's got a bit of a bad rep for being a guy that had some character issues. Like lying about injuries and family problems, trying to get out of playing....
Anyway, he is a PF.
skilled for a guy his size (about 6-10 probably). Really, really, really skilled and polished big man. He can play as a high post guy, a face up guy, or even spread the floor, but he definitely wants to stay in the low post all the time if he can.
He's a really good low post player. He also runs the floor quite well for a guy his size.
I would say he is just OK on defense and rebounding, although he is a good shot blocker. Maybe a bit of a tweener on defense. A bit slow as a PF on defense, and a bit undersized as a C on defense.
But basically, his value is that he's extremely skilled for a big man and he has a really good low post game.
He's not a Pekovic type player that just bruises and overpowers people. He's more a finesse skills guy. He's something more like a Kevin McHale style player if you will - a guy that likes to score in the low post off of moves and footwork.
