Draft Prospect Outlook

STRENGHTS

  • Elite scorer who can get his shot -- and make it -- off the dribble, off screens or in transition; range extends from paint to well beyond the 3-point line
  • Good finisher who loves to attack the rim and can finish with craftiness using either hand
  • Experienced college player who learned nuances of playing PG position; knows how to use pacing and timing to his advantage despite some of his athletic limitations

WEAKNESSES

  • Average playmaker for his teammates; makes smart and accurate reads but doesn't see plays before they develop, and is just-OK as a passer
  • Questionable competition -- played at an elite level against midmajor foes, but can his dominance translate?
  • Struggles as a defender in part because of his size; gets caught ball-watching and isn't always locked in, but has shown positive signs of potentially being good team defender
