I can think of a few pluses if no one else is going to mention them:

He has a 7'-2" wingspan and a 36" verticle leap which essentially makes him more effective than Bonner or Blair up high.

He fluctuates between 225 and 236 lbs which means he won't likely get pushed around as bad as a Malcom Thomas. Rather he'd get pushed around more like a SJax or Sean Elliot.

Maybe more important than any of that, by watching the video, he seems to have a natural sense of timing and placement on the offensive boards much like Kawhi Leonard. Something Bonner and Splitter do not seem to have. Blair has it but doesn't have the verticle leap. This could be a plus in regards to offensive rebounds.
