Scouting Report
Assets: A gifted, instinctive, hard-to-guard true scorer. Uses an endless array of fakes, spins, dribbles, and drives to score from anywhere in the half-court. Already possesses fantastic footwork and body positioning to set up defenders and win one-on-one. Near-automatic on free throws. Also a solid rebounder and defender with good length.
Flaws: Must keep honing his 3-point shooting. Versatility is a question mark for the pro game, since he doesn't quite have a guard's approach while also lacking the mass and explosiveness to play much at power forward. He's somewhat foul-prone too, in part due to less-than-ideal fluidity and leaping ability.
Career Potential: Skilled, smart combo forward with stellar scoring ability.
