    About 3 inches too tall for a Rockets PF.

    Edit: Didn't realize he was a C. I'll have to read up on him some more. No idea who he is right now.

    7'3" wingspan sounds great

    "He did a good job in pick-and-roll situations, and he showed himself to be a really good defender and defended pick-and-rolls well," Bilas said. "His ability to protect the rim was key because his arms are so long. He's a 7-foot-3 wingspan, but he's got quick feet and he's a good finisher when he gets the ball near the rim, and he actually showed the ability to hit an open jumper."
