Scouting Report

AssetsExplosive and energetic at both ends of the floor. A gritty rebounder who's always around the basket. Can be used in several roles, and plays bigger than his size. A strong leaper who runs the floor well and finishes impressively on the break.
FlawsCould do a better job as a passer (especially since he has the size of a shooting guard). While not sub-par as a shooter he's very streaky with his stroke (from both the arc and the charity stripe). Plays like a small forward but isn't ideally-sized for that role.
Career potentialAthletic, hard-nosed slashing wing.
