Scouting Report

AssetsTalented as a scorer: creates very well off the dribble with nice crossovers and other penetration moves. Excels at getting into the paint and finishing creatively while drawing contact. Will get very hot from the 3-point arc for stretches. Has the ball-handling ability to be a solid distributor, if needed.
FlawsStreaky from both the 3-point and free throw lines, and his game isn't very well-rounded (as he could be much more of a passer and ball thief). Not ideally-sized for the NBA 2-guard spot. Also lacks strength, isn't a great leaper, and has an average wingspan (all of which limit him defensively).
Career potentialGood offensive combo guard with classic 6th man qualities.
