Scouting Report
Assets: Tenacious and talented as a defender (at both guard spots or small forward). Constantly picking off passes, in part thanks to his 7-foot wingspan. A threat to block shots. Active passing the ball and a good rebounder for his size. Has improved his scoring ability and is electric in transition. A lefty.
Flaws: Streaky as a scorer overall and erratic as a shooter. Gets prone to turnovers when he handles the ball regularly. Despite his great length he's undersized when playing forward. Maturity is a question mark (as he's been in trouble with the law off the court), and he can be both inconsistent and foul-prone.
Career Potential: Underrated starting two-way wing.
