Scouting Report

AssetsOne of the NBA's premier ball thieves. A gifted natural scorer who is also an unselfish and gifted playmaker. Capable of starting at either guard position and even small forward.
FlawsHighly injury-prone (in part because of a lack of bulk). Increasingly inconsistent. Takes far too many ill-advised outside shots. Loses the ball too often. Doesn't always play up to potential.
Career potentialAbove-average (if inconsistent) combo guard.
