Scouting Report
Assets: Electric as a scorer and playmaker. Can take over games with his scoring and passing, and has worked to become a top-tier defender who's a catalyst for transition with a high number of steals. Draws fouls heading to the hoop and usually makes his free throws.
Flaws: Lacks overall efficiency: turns the ball over far too much, and takes too many three-pointers for the percentage of them he makes. Somewhat undersized for a shooting guard, which affects his durability and rebounding production.
Career Potential: High-scoring star combo guard.
