Last season on offense he showed gradual signs of improvement especially off the pick and pop and most imprortantly some handy footwork in the low block. He has somewhat good hands which is vital as Harden is very good at drive and dish to the bigs .
Overrall, he can be a good stretch 4 but he needs to improve his low post and pick and roll defense because the 4's in the NBA are all pretty agile and are good pick and roll players. He also needs to do a much better job boxing out and cleaning up the defensive glass.
