Scouting Report
Smart, instinctive, and fearless running the offense. Competitive and clutch. Does a nice job of finding his teammates and setting them up for easy buckets. Also has a true knack for steals, helping him key transition. Regularly gets himself into the paint to draw fouls and dish out. Shows nice form and arc on his jumper too. Small for the NBA backcourt and doesn't make up for it with explosive quickness or leaping ability. Defensively he can struggle in man-to-man situations due to his lacks of overall size, bulk, and quickness. May be limited to sixth man / backup duties because of his physical tools.
Long Range Potential: Instinctive, undersized rotational playmaking point guard.
