Scouting Report
Assets: Brings the raw tools and mentality to be a quality NBA scorer: great athleticism, excellent leaping and lane-filling abilities, a superb wingspan, and a fearless approach to shot-taking. A lefty shooter who can cross up defenders. Able to create his own shot and hit from the arc. Has the quickness and length to eventually defend well.
Flaws: Has struggled early in his NBA career to win much regular playing time or find a consistent role. Too often forces shots, and must improve his shooting stroke and release to become more consistent. Has the awareness and tools to be more of a passer and rebounder.
Career Potential: Athletic, explosive wing with depth potential.
