Scouting Report
Assets: Extremely quick. Super breaking his man down and is always looking for his teammates as a pass-first playmaker. Great pushing the pace on offense and can post impressive assist-to-turnover ratios. Provides a spark in whatever role he plays, and is explosive (quickness-wise and as a leaper).
Flaws: Streaky as a shooter (especially from the arc and the free throw line), which at his size is a big issue. Undersized in both height and bulk, and his small frame limits him defensively one-on-one against many NBA guards.
Career Potential: Explosive, skilled journeyman point guard with starter ability.
