Scouting Report

AssetsWhen on his game, can be other-worldly from behind the 3-point line. Possesses almost perfect shooting form, including a quick release and a sweet follow-through. Has the ability to hit for high marks from the field and the charity stripe.
FlawsWith age, has seen his revered perimeter touch become inconsistent (perhaps because he's become one-dimensional as a 3-point specialist and gets overplayed there). Could stand to vary his game a little more. Doesn't use his size to rebound or defend much.
Career potentialHighly skilled veteran 3-point shooting specialist (when in his groove).
