Scouting Report

AssetsWorked hard to evolve from a slasher-type into a pretty well-rounded player. Has enough moves that he's capable of being a go-to scorer if needed. Takes care of the ball and is an underrated defender who will block some shots.
FlawsShot selection is a problem, and he doesn't go to the hoop as much as he should & could (instead settling too often for sometimes-ill-advised 3-point attempts). Also not a very active passer or rebounder for a player with his physical tools.
Career potentialSolid veteran scoring swingman.
