Very smart player and unselfish, he loves play with the team, even if he is able to carry the team on his shoulders when necessary. Defensively Preston has everything to be an elite defender. Good lateral quickness and footwork, solid frame and athleticism, great shot-blocker for his position (this year 4 against USK Prague and 3 against NH Ostrava, 5th in the whole league for BPG). Always able to adapt himself in every situation of the game and make the difference in a lot of different ways.
