Scouting Report
Assets: Explosively athletic and a constant threat for game-changing dunks. Shows flashes of excellence shooting from the arc and setting up teammates. Gets his shot off quickly. Has the length and quickness to be a stellar NBA starter at either guard spot. Creative too.
Flaws: Very thin, which limits him as a defender and rebounder and will be an issue as he becomes more of a go-to option offensively. Not yet a knock-down outside shooter, and doesn't yet drive the hoop regularly enough to draw a lot of fouls. Still raw overall and needs development time, and injuries are a concern.
Career Potential: High-flying, high-potential combo guard (when healthy).
