Not your prototypical seven footer...He has great quickness and agility, and can move up and down the court with relative ease...Extremely athletic, but also plays with an impressive understanding of the game...Defensively the youngster is outstanding, and is shot blocking monster...Can score at will in the paint, and also has developed a solid outside jumper...Ajinca is also a menace on the glass, and puts forth a tremendous effort for every offensive carom...Will definitely need to bulk up for the physical play in the NBA...Also needs to work on his approach to man-to-man defense.
