Scouting Report
Assets: Energetic, intense, and explosive as a defender and slasher. Brings elite physical tools and great hustle. Uses his fantastic wingspan (seven feet) and top-tier foot-speed to make great plays on defense and to key transition. A good ball-handler for his size. Works hard.
Flaws: Has been injury-prone early in his career. Not much of a scorer at all, and he especially needs to shoot better from the outside. Can pass the ball much more too, considering his above-average ball-handling ability.
Career Potential: Defense-first starting combo forward (when healthy).
