Talent Analysis

Tot has had problems with injuries but overcame them in 2011-12 to have a solid season.  He showed some offensive ability to go with his good size.  Tot has some potential as a future power forward, but at this point his skills are a bit raw and it remains to be seen if he'll be able to round his game into what is needed to make the jump to the pro game.
