Scouting Report

AssetsA tenacious and hard-working defender. The former Ron Artest is an above-average scorer who uses his size and a solid jumper to bring a nice inside-outside game: will both post up opponents and hit the mid-range jumper. Intense and very competitive.
FlawsHis off-court troubles and antics can make him a distraction. Temper boils over too easily, and he will still occasionally make bad decisions resulting in technical fouls. Injury-prone and not a very fluid athlete. Too often takes ill-advised 3-point attempts.
Career potentialAging defense-first star combo forward.
