Scouting Report
A rare athlete even for an NBA wing, he brings top-tier agility, quickness, explosivenss, and instincts to the court. He shows more than enough ball-handling and passing ability to start at shooting guard, and is a good enough defender and has enough size to line up at forward. Also an intense, competitive type who plays hard. Foul-prone and turnover-prone. While well-sized and a strong leaper, he doesn't have a great wingspan for a defense-first guy. At this point he succeeds more with athleticism than with a standout skill. His shooting stroke in particular needs work (especially from the charity stripe). Raw overall, and maturity is a question mark.
Long Range Potential: Super-athletic wing with raw star tools.
