Scouting Report
Highly athletic and has a nice NBA-style combo guard game. Fearless as a shooter: flashes a lot of moves to get his shot, and brings good outside range when on his game. Can handle the point and will dish off effectively when over-covered (without posting too many turnovers). Also a catalyst in transition. Inconsistent with his shooting and must show he can make better choices with his shot selection (so he can hit for a better field goal percentage). Can be more of a rebounder considering his athleticism. Durability is an issue, and he must show he can stay healthy.
Long Range Potential: Slick but streaky scoring combo guard, with star talent.
