Scouting Report
Assets: Super-efficient as a scorer, especially for a guard: he hits for a high percentage from all over the floor (including from the arc and the charity stripe) and rarely turns the ball over. Super-quick and agile, which helps him defensively. Strong and muscular for a point guard too, which helps him get in the lane.
Flaws: While solid all-round, he doesn't stand out in any single area: he's not really a pure scorer or a true distributor, and he isn't a major playmaker on the defensive end. Lacks ideal arm length for the pro point guard spot, and he doesn't have great reach (even for a point guard).
Career Potential: Efficient combo guard with good backup tools.
