Strengths:

  • Versatile offensive player. Decent ball-handler. Good vision. Can play multiple spots.
  • Quick athlete. Especially impressive moving laterally.
  • Passes well off the dribble. Has an innate ability to find the open man. Sees the floor well in pick-and-rolls.
  • Plus defender. Can defend both guard positions with length. Gets up into ball-handlers. Best shot-blocking guard in the class.
  • Rebounds well for his position.

Weaknesses:

  • Shooting is a question. Looked much improved in the combine but is not a respected threat right now.
  • Scoring ability is limited. Is a jack-of-all-trades that struggles to put the ball in the hoop outside of transition looks.
  • Only had one year at USC and was ineligible all last year.
  • Overall IQ is a question.
