Scouting Report
Assets: Highly instinctive and talented as a scorer, and he can excel as either a big guard or small-ball forward. He's superb one-on-one, with the ability to carry his team offensively. He also brings the size and effort to be a good rebounder too. A smooth, skilled, slick scoring talent with star quality and versatility.
Flaws: A serious back injury raises questions about his durability, as does his significant lack of muscle mass for the pro game. While an instinctive player and hard worker on and off the court, he must show he has the physicality to be a good defender as a pro. Also must show more as a passer.
Career Potential: Gifted scoring swingman with raw All-Star tools (when healthy).
