Scouting Report

AssetsA fantastic natural shooter: has a sweet outside stroke, hits for a solid percentage from the field overall, and is near-automatic on free throws. A pretty solid passer who doesn't make many mistakes with the ball and shows some court vision.
FlawsLacks size for an NBA shooting guard. Can still be fairly one-dimensional at times (as a shoot-first 2-guard) and must continue to round out his whole game. Needs to drive the lane more. Streaky.
Career potentialPromsing (but still-inconsistent) shooting guard.
