Scouting Report
Polished, skilled, and supremely smart with the ball. Capable of running the offense as a point-forward, and makes intelligent reads on offense. An excellent ball-handler and passer for his size, and makes a nice effort as a rebounder. Can hit the three with regularity, and is excellent on free throws. Brings an old-school game on 'O.' Not very athletic, not much of a leaper, and struggles on the defensive end with foul trouble. Doesn't bring great lateral 'quicks' on 'D' and is far from a bruiser under the hoop to make up for it. Somewhat a wing playmaker in a power forward's frame (although he doesn't have a great wingspan).
Long Range Potential: Smart, polished point-forward with seventh man tools.
