Scouting Report
Great one-on-one, especially as a scorer. Runs the offense at a high speed and is a smart playmaker. Fearless heading to the hoop, and does a great job of either scoring or finding his teammates on the dish. Brings a top-tier mix of skill, quickness, and overall lead guard instincts. Excellent on free throws. Turnover-prone, and can be an even more effective passer. Not explosive as a leaper, limiting his rebounding and finishing potential. Lacks size and is injury-prone, so must show he can withstand the pounding of a full NBA campaign. Has been called a 'me first' player by some due to
Long Range Potential: Elite point guard (when healthy).
