He will be in the nba someday.
Easy....

Not going to put a cap on any man’s ambitions, but there is a ways to go before such bold proclamations are reasonable. His trend is nice and he will make money playing basketball if that is what he chooses, but not a lot of 6’7” post players getting looks for the most competitive professional league in sports.

Agreed. Wouldn't rule it out, though. He moves well enough to defend in space, communicates, is an elite rebounder, and by all accounts is a fanatical worker. The big question is of course long-range shooting; it's almost a requirement in the league now, and his free throw percentage doesn't augur well. However, given the propensity for hard work, a good shot doctor might get him there.

By no means a lock, but if I were a GM I'd take a flier on him.
