NBA Comparison:

Strengths: 6’4.5 combo guard … Good length for position with a 6’7 wingspan and 8’3.5 standing reach … Good strength and frame … Gels well with other guards, as he can play either guard position with a good balance of scoring and distributing, also playing on and off the ball … Unselfish and good court vision ... Averaged 4.2 assists per game over the Nike EYBL, three per game at the NBPA Top 100, and 3.2 per game at adidas Nations … Aggressive mindset. Stays in attack mode … Can score from anywhere on the floor ... Averaged 15.1 points per game while shooting 46.4% from the floor over the Nike EYBL. Shot 45.8% from the floor at adidas Nations. Shot 40% from three over the Nike EYBL and 43.5% at adidas Nations ... Good ball handler. Good slashing ability and can get to the rim off the dribble ... Changes speed with the ball and uses hesitations ... Patient and stays poised under pressure. Doesn’t favor a side when driving … Quick first step and natural penetrator … Reliable free throw shooter, shot 80% from the line over the Nike EYBL and 81.8% at adidas Nations … Good defensive potential ... Solid length combined with anticipation and intensity on the ball ... Averaged 1.1 steals per game over the Nike EYBL and at the NBPA Top 100, and one per game at adidas Nations ...

Weaknesses: Solid athlete but isn’t incredibly explosive ... Doesn’t finish much above the rim … Can improve upon his lead guard skills and lacks as a floor general ... Good assist count but can cut down on the turnovers with 2.6 per game over the Nike EYBL and 2.1 per game at the NBPA Top 100 ... Needs to protect the ball better when dribbling in traffic ... Can be loose with his passing ... Can improve his midrange game, generally takes threes or goes all the way to the rim … Fearless driver but isn’t consistent finishing around the rim in traffic ... Can improve his shooting off the dribble ... Most of his threes come from on a catch and shoot, generally when he puts the ball down, he’s going in for a layup ...

Outlook: LSU commit … Averaged 10.5 points and 3.3 rebounds per game at the NBPA Top 100 … Helped USA Red 2018 to win the championship at adidas Nations while averaging 10.5 points and three rebounds per game …

Notes: Measured 6'1.75 without shoes, 6'2.75 with shoes, 174 lbs, with a 6'6 wingspan and 8'3 standing reach at the 2014 USA Junior National Team Mini Camp ...
