Scouting Report
Assets: Brings an athletic, well-rounded two-way game. He's a top-tier defensive playmaker who piles up steals and gets his share of blocks, and he's a good rebounder for his size. Also a very solid shooter who's good from the perimeter and excellent on free throws. A high-flying leaper too, and draws copious fouls with his drives. Brings a nice wingspan, and his big hands help him with ball control and defense. Energetic and high-effort.
Flaws: He needs to keep tightening up his game, and he can especially do a better job of finishing his drives to the hoop. He doesn't have ideal height for a pro wing (although he usually compensates with his great length, big hands, and supreme athleticism).
Career Potential: Long, super-athletic wing player with above-average starter tools.
