Scouting Report
A talented shooter: has a sweet outside stroke, hits for a solid percentage from the field overall, and is near-automatic on free throws. A pretty solid passer too, and doesn't make many mistakes with the ball. Can play some small forward in small-ball lineups. High-character. Lacks ideal size for an NBA wing. Streaky, and can still be fairly one-dimensional at times (as a shoot-first 2-guard) and must continue to round out his whole game to solidify himself as a rotation regular. Needs to drive the lane more often.
Long Range Potential: Sweet-shooting rotational wing player.
