Scouting Report
Assets: Instinctive, smart, and super-fast as a playmaker. Explosive, and plays the game at top speed. Makes good decisions and can carry his team as both a lead scorer and as a passer. Excels at shooting from downtown, with picture-perfect form on his jumper. Really pushes the pace, pressures the defense, and draws contact. Rebounds well for a guard too.
Flaws: Not ideally-sized for an NBA shooting guard, and doesn't make up for it with a long wingspan. Not at top steals guy (in part due to a lack of great length) and must show he can be a 'true' pass-first point guard if needed. Sometimes forces things from the perimeter, leading to some streakiness and unnecessary turnovers.
Career Potential: Speedy lead guard with star potential.
