Scouting Report
Assets: Smart and skilled, especially as a scorer. A solid shooter (from the field, the arc, and the charity stripe) and a creative point-getter. Does a little bit of everything well on the court; a good rebounder and defender considering his thin build, and a very good passer (with some point guard moves). Also a supreme leaper and finisher.
Flaws: His lack of muscle mass presents significant challenges stopping NBA players in the post. Not particularly fast or nimble despite his light mass. Can play somewhat out of control at times and would benefit by reining his game in a bit.
Career Potential: Talented scoring swingman / sixth man.
