Scouting Report
Assets: A rare true point-forward: blessed with the instincts, court vision, anticipation, and skills of an elite point guard, with the size of a big pro forward. Has a knack for creating high-percentage shots for himself and teammates. Superbly active and smart, and can stuff the stat sheet with points, rebounds, assists, and steals.
Flaws: Lives in the key at both ends of the floor but doesn't have a wide frame or great bulk for an under-the-basket player. Not yet a 'stretch four' type (as he rarely shoots from the 3-point arc). While he draws constant fouls he's not an adequate free throw shooter. Must show the durability to thrive in the NBA.
Career Potential: True point-forward with superstar talent.
