Scouting Report
Gifted as a scorer, especially from the outside. Can truly fill it up and carry his team for stretches, and is able to hit from anywhere in the offensive zone. An elite 3-point shooter who uses his size to shoot over opponents. Fairly well-rounded: a good one-on-one defender too. Despite his solid defensive instincts and excellent shutdown ability he doesn't pile up the rebounds, steals, or blocked shots. Would benefit by bulking up his frame and driving the lane more often. Will still occasionally get streaky for stretches.
Long Range Potential: Sweet-shooting, two-way All-Star wing.
