Scouting Report
Assets: An explosive, smooth, athletic top scorer. Very fluid, agile, and fast up and down the court and can score in a variety of ways. Willing as a passer too. Has the tools (size, quickness, coordination, a great wingspan) to be a very good defender when focused. Able to start at either forward spot (and even play a little small-ball center).
Flaws: Streaky, in part because of questionable shot selection: too often settles for perimeter shots when he could / should be driving to the hoop. Too often coughs the ball up as well. Not the rebounder he could be considering his size, length, and athleticism.
Career Potential: Veteran star scoring forward, with consistency issues.
