Strengths:

  • Perimeter shooting. Operates comfortably off of screens and in transition.
  • Big guard. Has a wiry frame with the size to shoot over the defense.
  • Solid IQ. Knows how to pass in the flow of an offense and understands spacing.
  • Penetration potential. Decent first step and has a feel for what moves to make. Just needs more refinement.

Weaknesses:

  • Doesn’t play through contact.
  • Lacks length despite good size for a two-guard.
  • Defensive prowess. Gets into passing lanes well but doesn’t use his length enough to corral ball-handlers.
  • Average ball-handling at this point. Has some shiftiness and attacks closeouts but it limited to basic moves.
