Scouting Report
Assets: Really excels as a '3-and-D' wing: he's solid hitting the open 3-pointer, and elite as a ball-thief (and using his long wingspan to intercept passes, block shots, and rebound impressively). Fast, and can soar over most defenders as a finisher. Hits his free throws. Overall, brings a strong mix of length, athleticism, and tools.
Flaws: Foul-prone and turnover-prone. A bit of an in-betweener: doesn't pass enough for a small forward and isn't a true on-the-block post player. Needs much more muscle mass to compete in the paint and would benefit from more back-to-the-basket moves.
Career Potential: Underrated, athletic combo forward with a nice inside-outside game.
