Scouting Report
Versatility is his calling card: he has the skills and athleticism of a combo guard with the frame of a combo forward. He's a dynamic, instinctive playmaker who does everything pretty well. He's an excellent leaper for his size, does a nice job on the drive-and-dish, can hit the open trey, and is a very solid defender. Plays smart, mistake-free ball. A significant lack of muscle mass hurts him against many forwards, and he needs to put on bulk for the NBA. While highly versatile he might not have a true position yet, so he'll need to work to find his niche as a pro.
Long Range Potential: Well-sized, well-rounded swingman with solid rotational tools.
