Scouting Report
Very well-rounded: an excellent and energetic defender and rebounder who's also constantly going to the hoop on offense (taking high-percentage shots). Can score with some range too. A great athlete with a long frame. Piles up steals and keys transition, and takes care of the basketball. Still doesn't have much of a reliable shooting stroke (either from downtown or from the charity stripe). Not very bulky or powerful, contributing to him being somewhat injury-prone. Also not much of a passer.
Long Range Potential: Super-athletic, slashing starting combo forward.
