Scouting Report
Assets: A smooth and above-average scorer with a nice mid-range game and excellent athleticism. Can still be explosive going to the hoop; gets by his man with ease, and can still jump over some defenders. A solid man-to-man defender too. Experienced and well-rounded.
Flaws: Drives the lane less with age, and leans too heavily on his 3-point shot. Can be prone to slumps. Not a big rebounder or help defender, and will too often register a foul rather than make a big stop. Not an accurate shooter from the arc despite regular attempts.
Career Potential: Role-playing, aging former star small forward.
