Cushing doesn't lack upside. He's 6'3" 243 with excellent strength for the position (although Rey Rey plays stronger than him) and runs a 4.7.
Cushing has definite upside, it's just that his body probably doesn't have a ton of room to grow. But he does have a lot of room to improve in his agility and hip movement.
