Scouting Report

AssetsVery well-rounded for a forward: brings some guard skills, including solid three-point range, a nose for steals, and some passing ability. Also a good rebounder with a great wingspan. Skilled, feisty, and has some leadership qualities.
FlawsLacks size for an NBA forward and isn't a top-tier athlete. Doesn't block shots like he could. Would benefit greatly from finding his niche / specialty at the NBA level.
Career potentialVersatile energy forward with some upside.
