Scouting Report
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. 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.
Long Range Potential: Athletic, explosive wing with depth potential.
