Scouting Report

AssetsBrings a nice inside-outside game: can hit the open 3-ball and also isn't afraid to take the biscuit to the basket. A good athlete, an energetic presence, and an underrated talent. Versatile.
FlawsIsn't much of a passer. Can sometimes get too fixated on the three, which hurts his effectiveness with the shot; hanging on the perimeter too much also affects his rebounding.
Career potentialAll-round above-average combo forward.
