The scouting report is that he is a very good defender (not lock down ability), but will hold his own against PF's. He isn't versatile according to some article I read, but he is strictly a PF who has a nice midrange game with awesome footwork and a willing passer (perfect for Adelman).
He did hold his own against Boozer and Brand in the World Championships. Like I said though, look out for a blogger posted by tomorrow in the Rockets section.
I will be posting a more indept analysis and stuff I research in order to bring more knowledge to Rockets fans and NBA fans in general.
