Scouting Report

AssetsA veteran leader who's still a pretty complete player: a strong scorer, good defender and rebounder, active passer, and a superb free-throw shooter. Versatile, and plays bigger than his height. Provides a settling influence on the court and in the locker room.
FlawsAge and a long history of injuries have taken their toll on his quickness and athleticism. Commits his share of turnovers. Not a great three-point shooter despite his tendency to take a lot of attempts from the arc.
Career potentialAging quality swingman and leader.
