Draft Prospect Outlook

STRENGTHS  

  • Pass-first point guard with good instincts as a passer and decision-maker
  • Elite on-ball defensive player; menacing perimeter defensive presence
  • Improved as a shooter from freshman to sophomore season at Duke; still needs improvement but showed promising development and has good shooting touch

WEAKNESSES

  • Move-the-ball distributor, but not a true creator: Doesn't have the speed or explosiveness to blow by defenders and generate offense on his own
  • Shot just 26.2% from 3 as freshman at Duke; improved as a sophomore (36.1% from 3), though that was on just 108 attempts. Has good shooting touch but needs to show it is sustainable.

PRO COMPARISON: Tyus Jones
