Scouting Report
Assets: Brings excellent one-on-one instincts (even for a lead guard) and can make defenders look silly with his crossovers and moves. An above-average pro scorer with a nice mid-range game. A solid passer and a good rebounder for a guard. Has strong leaping and finishing abilities, large hands, and exceptional quickness.
Flaws: Turnover-prone. While a solid all-round playmaker, he can be more of a distributor to balance out his excellent scoring ability. Still developing his shot selection and will get streaky for stretches. Not very durable, which limits his effectiveness as a starter.
Career Potential: High-scoring combo guard with star tools (when healthy).
