If you asked me to compare him to any current player in the NBA(Upside) it would be Tim Duncan. And while Duncan is theoretically a center, he plays much more like a power forward than a true center.
I think his future is as a PF too (he would get eaten alive by somebody like Howard or Bynum), but he currently plays like a center. Most offensive power forwards have a reliable jump shot. Currently he's Pau Gasol lite. Very lite.
