    Going off highlight videos: skilled player offensively, can post up in Euroleague.

    Concerned about his rebounding and whether he's strong enough to post up in the NBA.

    He's Rick Adelman's prototypical bigman.

    def. good pick. I was hoping we could've got Kawahi Leonard at 14 and Donatas at 23. Get good D and good O.

    the garm hates it, but people here seem to understand the reason behind the pick.

    Motie has a full toolbox offensively. Man he could be really tough if he works at it.
