Scouting Report
Assets: Excellent as a shut-down perimeter defender: makes life hard on opposing players. Pretty explosive filling the lane on offense, and works hard on both ends of the court--hustles and does the little things. Fast, and pretty versatile. A good passer who can play some point, and hits the open trey. Also a mature locker room presence.
Flaws: Can be an offensive liability: struggles significantly with shot selection, and doesn't excel at creating for himself. Needs to develop more of a mid-range game and / or a post-up approach (while adding more bulk for shots closer to the basket). Despite his great 'D' he doesn't post big stat-lines.
Career Potential: Quality vet perimeter defensive specialist, and locker room leader.
