Scouting Report

AssetsVery fast. A solid ball-handler and a good passer who excels at pushing the ball and running the offense. Has a nice shooting motion and can score in bunches. Does a good job of limiting turnovers despite generally playing at a high speed.
FlawsUndersized and not much of a factor defensively or on the boards. Streaky in general and really struggles to hit for a passable field goal percentage (in part because he launches too many 3-point attempts). Somewhat injury-prone. Has bounced around the league despite a high talent level.
Career potentialStreaky but talented point guard.
