Scouting Report
Assets: A pure scorer with excellent hands and electric quickness. Can really fill it up in a hurry, and is able to carry his team for stretches. Has a knack for hitting tough shots, with a nice mid-range game. Also drives the lane capably, and shows solid instincts as a passer when teams overplay him. Takes care of the ball too.
Flaws: A true shooting guard in a point guard's frame, and isn't a pass-first distributor. His lack of size has long led to defensive and durability issues. Takes too many 3-pointers for a player with streaky accuracy from the arc. Has somewhat bounced from team to team.
Career Potential: Elite scoring sixth man who can also start.
