Scouting Report

AssetsA supreme athlete. Can distribute like an elite point guard, but is a natural scorer. Almost impossible to contain one-one-one. Has the range to make teams pay for overplaying him and the explosiveness to finish hard at the hoop.
FlawsInjuries and off-court issues have sapped Stevie Franchise of consistency. Turnovers have always been a problem.
Career potentialFading star guard.
