Scouting Report
A top-tier playmaker and an offensive catalyst. He does a great job sizing up the defense on the run, decides quickly and confidently, then makes things happen either as a scorer or distributor. He's an excellent perimeter shooter with a quick release and is a deft, creative passer who makes teammates better. Also gets his share of steals. His overall size, length, and in-game leaping ability are all underwhelming. Defensively he struggles for stretches, especially against bigger, stronger, longer opponents. Offensively he can be streaky, and is very turnover-prone. He'd benefit by bulking up a bit and tightening up his entire game.
Long Range Potential: Top-tier offensive point guard with starter ability.
