Scouting Report

AssetsA sweet-shooting pure scorer. Can hit shots from all over the floor and rarely misses free throws. Has a nice mid-range game, and the quickness and leaping ability to get to the hoop when overplayed (and can make creative shots in traffic). Fearless, and able to carry an offense for stretches.
FlawsVery streaky and sometimes forces things. Sometimes lingers around the outside too much, which contributes to his lack of production as a rebounder and defender. Could use a lot more muscle mass on his frame.
Career potentialStreaky but talented scorer at shooting guard or small forward.
