Draft Prospect Outlook

STRENGHTS

  • Elite shooter who made 43% of his 3s in college; rated in 97th percentile last season as spot-up shooter
  • High IQ lead guard who makes smart passes, limits mistakes and can quarterback an offense
  • Engaged defender who consistently plays above physical limitations; plays with good anticipation and has always been good team defender

WEAKNESSES

  • Physically limited: at 6-foot-1 is one of the smallest lead guards in this year's draft, and he's not the most explosive athlete, either
  • Overcomes lack of athletic pop with skill and feel, but can't blow by defenders because of his smaller frame and lack of top-end speed
