Scouting Report
He has the ideal profile for an NBA swingman: great athleticism, length, and skill. A very good defender who will make plays as a stopper. Offensively he possesses a sweet quick-release shooting stroke and explosive moves going to the hoop. Mature, a selfless passer, and has a good attitude. Can be a more take-charge scorer, and he disappears from some games offensively. Needs to bulk up his wiry frame a little to deal with the NBA grind and physicality. Must become more consistent in general to get the most from his great tools.
Long Range Potential: Above-average defense-first wing, with consistency issues.
