Draft Prospect Outlook

STRENGTHS

  • Possesses great court vision and has passing skills to match it
  • Crafty with the ball in his hands and able to create off the dribble, both for himself and for teammates
  • Developing tool in his arsenal: a James Harden-like stepback move that's near-impossible to defend
  • Smooth, fluid left-handed release with great touch from deep and in the lane, at the free throw line and on floaters
  • Good positional size
  • Can read the game at a high level in an instant, making him a threat to thrive in the modern, pick-and-roll heavy NBA

WEAKNESSES

  • Average athlete with no real burst to blow by defenders
  • Below average 3-point shooter; improved in EuroCup play, but larger sample suggests it could be a swing skill
  • Ambidexterity remains a work in progress; largely lefty dominant s a dribbler, passer and finisher
