Draft Prospect Outlook

STRENGTHS

  • Super-leaper with freakish athleticism, capable of producing highlight reel dunks and blocks; broke Zion Williamson's max vertical leap record at Duke
  • Versatile, switchy defender who can guard every backcourt spot due to his length, energy and size
  • Good positional size and role player potential: has the makings of a 3-and-D type guard who can make an impact in low usage

WEAKNESSES

  • Older for his class; will be 21 by the time the draft takes place
  • Struggles as a decision-maker with the ball in his hands; negative assist/turnover ratio at Duke
  • Not a creator due to his unpolished handle; incapable right now of carving out space to generate his own offense

PRO COMPARISON: Zach LaVine's athleticism, Iman Shumpert's role player upside
