Scouting Report

AssetsAll-round excellent as an offensive point guard: brings a scorer's mentality to the point guard spot yet is also a solid distributor who doesn't turn it over. Speedy and skilled, makes an effort on 'D,' and is excellent at the free throw line.
FlawsHis lack of size limits him on the defensive end, and contributes to a history of durability issues. Can be streaky, and took awhile reaching his potential at the NBA level. Has leaned more on the 3-pointer with age, resulting in a dropping FG%.
Career potentialVeteran star point guard.
