Scouting Report
Assets: An accomplished leader and clutch winner. Excels at breaking defenders down one-on-one. Lightning fast, and highly skilled (with good playmaking ability overall). Brings deceptive leaping ability for both finishing the break and grabbing rebounds. Limits his turnovers too, and hits high-pressure shots. A hard worker who draws charges.
Flaws: Not quite a true pass-first point guard and is small overall for the NBA backcourt (limiting him defensively one-on-one). Needs to become more effective at getting into the lane and converting a greater number of high-percentage buckets.
Career Potential: Underrated star point guard.
