Scouting Report

AssetsA fearless scorer with good instincts and a lot of nice moves. Has consistent and solid shooting range and brings nice inside-outside balance on offense. Can play the point position capably if needed, and doesn't turn the ball over much.
FlawsA bit small for the NBA shooting guard position, and while a solid athlete he won't overwhelm pro opponents physically. Doesn't offer much as a distributor or rebounder, and spends too much time on the perimeter.
Career potentialStreaky but above-average scoring combo guard.
