Scouting Report

AssetsElite as a scorer, when on his game. Possesses the size and length of a power forward and the explosiveness, quickness, and leaping ability of a small forward. A lefty with range on his jumper. Underrated as a defender and a solid rebounder when he wants to be.
FlawsOff-court troubles have been a big issue early in his career. Very inconsistent; will look like an All-Star one game and disappear the next. A bit foul prone, and could be more of a rebounder and defender. Not a great passer.
Career potentialInconsistent scoring combo forward with star-level tools.
