Scouting Report

AssetsA talented pure scorer. Has a nice first step and good leaping ability. Loves to drive the lane and draw fouls, and is a strong finisher. Has a solid outside jumper to keep teams honest. Gives a good effort rebounding & can be effective at both forward spots.
FlawsStreaky (both game-to-game and season-to-season). A bit injury-prone. While solid on defense he could bring more in that area. Needs more work overall on his shooting stroke.
Career potentialInconsistent scoring forward.
