Scouting Report

AssetsCapable of running the show as a point-forward. Shows good court vision and impressive instincts driving to the hoop and dishing to teammates. Solidly-sized for a small forward, yet also a fluid and coordinated athlete. Rebounds fairly well for a lead guard type, and is a threat for steals.
FlawsNot a consistent range shooter (either from the arc or the free throw line). Lacks strength and bulk for a forward and is more a guard with a forward's frame. Isn't an explosive finisher.
Career potentialSmooth point-forward or lead guard with excellent size.
