-Huge frame. Already chiseled
-Very long arms
-Strong athlete. Very good first step
-A bulldozer in transition
-Very aggressive attacking the paint in the half-court. Draws fouls at a nice clip
-Tremendous defender with ability to guard three positions. Combination of strength, length and quickness is very impressive.
-Strong rebounder for a guard
-Makes a few more jump-shots than you'd think he would at times
-Undersized for a shooting guard at 6-3
-Has very poor shooting mechanics that don't leave much room for optimism long-term. Just flings ball at basket from fingertips with poor touch. Career 27% 3P%
-Career 53% FT%
-Doesn't have great court vision. Drives wildly into traffic
-Able to overpower weaker players at this level of competition with his advanced frame and strong athletic ability, but what will happen when everyone catches up?
Outlook: Billed as a point guard but really more of a small forward than anything right now. Has great potential defensively, but needs to polish up his offensive skill-set significantly, something he hasn't really done over the last few years.
