Scouting Report

AssetsA smooth and above-average scorer with a nice mid-range game. Can be explosive going to the hoop; gets by his man with ease and can jump over defenders. A solid man-to-man defender. Has experience as a go-to scorer.
FlawsHas become less of a driver with age, and leans too heavily on his 3-point shot. Can be prone to slumps. Not a big rebounder or help defender, and will register a foul rather than make a big stop. Not an accurate shooter from the arc despite regular attempts.
Career potentialAging scoring small forward.
