Scouting Report
Assets: Long of limb and very athletic. Can run the court like a guard and fill the lane with authority. Boasts excellent range beyond the 3-point arc. Is a solid man-to-man defender and a good, active passer who takes care of the ball. A lefty shooter who's hard to guard.
Flaws: Does everything well but doesn't often stand out in any area. Capable of hitting big shots but won't take over on either end. Can get posted up by power forwards when lined up against them in small-ball lineups, due to his very thin frame. Is generally losing a step with age.
Career Potential: Star veteran two-way forward, on the decline.
