Scouting Report
Assets: One of the planet's most dependable and efficient passers: has superb instincts, vision, and anticipation leading the offense. Finds teammates in ideal situations, makes great choices, and rarely turns it over. Excels both in the halfcourt and at pushing the ball. Also a highly accurate shooter (from the field and from the charity stripe).
Flaws: Not very physical on the defensive end and can get posted up by big guards. Doesn't poach for steals like he could. Somewhat undersized, and has never been much of a rebounder or finisher at the rim. A high-character teammate.
Career Potential: Excellent playmaking journeyman point guard.
