Looking through YouTube clips looks like he fits the mould of SEM import bigs. Didn't see much scoring outside of dunks/around the basket, but looks ok in the pick and roll and can finish strong. Didn't see much defensive highlights but with the way fouls are called on shot blockers I'm the NBL he'll either average 3 blocks a game or 4 fouls I'm sure.

Decent signing and I like when young imports are signed, you sometimes see decent upswing from prior performance as they're still learning the pro game.

With the headband and game style, reminiscent of Josh Boone. Should be a good fit at SEM style wise.

Looks like he signed with Galatasaray but then never suited up? Injured or just couldn't find an offer he liked?

Matches well with a certain McWanky that plays for them!

Love this pick up.

Really good lad. Will fit right into the Melbourne culture.

Unless he gets called to a higher level on much bigger money we could get a lifer here.
