Scouting Report

AssetsA very smooth talent with an increasingly impressive skill-set. His long arms, big hands, and good height help him excel as a defender. Improving as a scorer, and has some guard skills. Fluid, coordinated, and quick for a guy his size.
FlawsIs more advanced defensively than offensively and needs to learn to create his own shot more effectively. Somewhat injury-prone, and could use more muscle mass for the NBA game.
Career potentialAll-round quality forward with upside.
