Scouting Report
A true shutdown defender: he won't back down from any assignment, and is often tasked with stifling the opposition's best scorer. He can defend any position on the court (including center) and does a great job of being physical without getting into too much foul trouble. He's additonally a confident pass-first playmaker. While dominant on 'D' he struggles with consistently offensively, especially as a shooter; he has a tough time hitting for a high percentage from anywhere on the floor (including the paint, the arc, and the charity stripe). Turnover prone too. His great intensity can boil over at times and lead to mistakes and lack of focus.
Long Range Potential: Dominant defensive guard and pass-first point-man.
