Scouting Report
Assets: Extremely quick. Excels at pushing the ball and is a deft and slick ball-handler. Super breaking his man down one-on-one, but is also always looking for his teammates as a pass-first playmaker. Provides a spark when brought in off the bench. An exceptional leaper for his size.
Flaws: Struggles significantly as a shooter, from everywhere on the court (the field, the arc, and the free throw line), which at his size is a big issue. Undersized in both height and bulk; his small frame limits him defensively against many NBA guards.
Career Potential: Speedy pass-first rotational point guard.
