Scouting Report

AssetsA gifted and active passer with excellent court vision and good anticipation. Will pile up steals and key transition. Uses his solid frame well to get into the lane, and scores when necessary.
FlawsHis tendency to force the action leads to too many turnovers and far too many ill-advised three-pointer attempts; a poor shooter from the field. Has a history of significant off-court troubles and injuries throughout his career.
Career potentialStreaky pass-first veteran point guard.
