NBA Comparison: N/A

Strengths: An athletic wing player who is able to stretch the defense with his outside shot … He has good range, elevates well, shoots a high release and his stance is well balanced … Coming off screens is his forte, he reads the action well and consistently gets open … He is comfortable shooting pullups going both ways,(he utilizes the shotfake to create space) and thanks to his ability to get off the ground, his shot is very difficult to contest … He plays with poise and great confidence and seems to thrive in clutch situations … He is extremely effective on the break, especially when he gets the ball on the wing and can use his athleticism to convert plays … … His body is well defined and it looks more than ready for the rigors at the next level … The chiselled frame and wide shoulders give him a great advantage on the glass, as he can clear space and grab rebounds … Statistically he has improved across the board every season …

Weaknesses: Currently he plays like a SF, and even though he has nice explosiveness, at 6’4 he is very undersized … His first step is marginal and what compounds that even more is that fact that he is not much of a threat off the dribble … If he is forced to use more that 2 or 3 bounces, he becomes uncomfortable and ineffective, even more so going to his left … Handling the ball in transition or under any sort of pressure is also a major weakness … As a result, he is fairly one dimensional, limiting himself to being merely a spot shooter … He has numerous opportunities to attack closeouts, yet he settles for contested shots … His vision and passing ability are pretty good, but due to the fact that he has a hard time creating space and drawing help, he doesn’t get his teammates many open shots and even more troubling is the fact that he has always averaged more turnovers than assists … Defensively, his physical tools will give him a chance to compete, but he needs to show much more desire on that end if he is to have any sort of chance …
