Scouting Report
Assets: Gifted as a scorer and an excellent playmaker with above-average court vision. Shows strong one-on-one moves and crossovers to break down defenders. Has the instincts to play the NBA point, with small-forward size, length, and physicality.
Flaws: Must show he can be more durable and consistent in general. Still ironing out his perimeter shooting stroke. Despite excellent playmaking skills he needs to be a more efficient passer. Won't explode over opponents as a leaper.
Career Potential: Star-level playmaking swingman.
