Scouting Report
Assets: Brings rare size, length, and court vision to the point guard position. A talented ball-handler and scorer who knows how to split the defense. Does a great job of rebounding the ball and keying the transition game himself. Uses his long frame effectively in passing lanes to poach steals.
Flaws: Not a consistent or accurate shooter, either from the arc or the free throw line. Lacks NBA experience despite advancing age. Still significantly lacks ideal weight on his frame, which (along with underwhelming leaping ability) limits his drives in the paint and finishing ability.
Career Potential: Smooth, tall playmaking point guard.
