Draft Prospect Outlook

STRENGTHS

  • Talented playmaker, particularly for his position; can put the ball on the floor and drive to create offense for himself and knows how to deliver dimes off the dribble
  • Very good handles allows him to operate as a lead guard, and he knows how to create leverage and space to prop open passing windows and generate open looks
  • Good finisher around the rim as a shooter and distributor; has good touch on his shot, which portends well for his long-term development

WEAKNESSES

  • Shot just 29.3% from 3 last season, a lackluster outside-shooting mark that could stunt his success if it doesn't improve
  • Shows good touch on jumpers, but results aren't there: he made just 42.3% from the field all of last season and 71.1% from the free throw line
  • Not an overly impressive athlete but tends to overcome it with a high IQ, good handles and good feel for the game
