Scouting Report
Assets: Has elite hands, basketball instincts, and playmaking ability: sees the court exceptionally well, shows superb anticipation, and almost never makes a mistake with the basketball (committing very few turnovers). Also scores capably when needed, with a solid perimeter jumper. Gets his share of steals too.
Flaws: He's defensively limited by middling height and length, along with a very light frame. He has trouble containing bigger, stronger guards and needs to add some weight. As a scorer he's limited as a lane-driver because he lacks top-tier leaping ability, isn't very physical, and doesn't have a knock-down 3-pointer to draw defenders.
Career Potential: Sure-handed, excellent backup point guard (with some starter tools).
