Scouting Report
Shows top-tier court vision and passing / playmaking instincts, with the ability to run the offense impressively. He uses his height to exploit mismatches against smaller opponents, and does a nice job penetrating and finding his teammates. Fast, athletic, instinctive, and creative. He also gets his share of steals and rebounds. Shooting is a major issue: he has an awkward shooting stroke with a low release point, and he's not a high-flying finisher (factors hurting his field goal percentage). He also really struggles on free throws. Additionally, man-to-man defense is a challenge: he's thin, doesn't have a long wingspan, and lacks explosiveness.
Long Range Potential: Tall, creative pass-first point guard with some star tools.
