Scouting Report
Assets: Athletically excellent, even for a wing player: he's exceedingly fluid, fast, and coordinated in the open court, and he is explosive filling the lane. He shows flashes of brilliance and flair thanks to his amazing body control, and he has developed into a very solid 3-point shooter. The tools are there for '3-and-D' play and starter duties.
Flaws: Inconsistent, and underwhelming in terms of overall production. He doesn't make the most of his exceptional athletic tools, and does most things solidly but not many exceptionally. Will likely need to make his living as a defender in the NBA, but he isn't a prodigious source of steals, rebounds, or blocks.
Career Potential: Super-athletic but inconsistent '3-and-D' wing, with rotational upside.
