NBA Comparison: Steve Smith/Shaun Livingston

Strengths: 6’7 combo guard … Good size and versatility for position. Can play on or off the ball. Natural feel for the game … Good athlete and very fluid. Quick off the floor and has no issue finishing above the rim jumping off one or both feet … Good ball-handler and keeps his dribble alive under pressure. Doesn’t over-dribble. Reads the floor well with good court vision and passing ability. Pushes the ball with either hand and leads well in transition. Finished 3rd in assists averaging 4.2 to 1.8 turnovers per game at the U18 Americas Championship in 2022 … Good rebounder for position. Averaged 7.8 (2 offensive) rebounds per game at the U18 Americas Championship in 2022 … Good tools, versatility, and intensity as a defender, showing ability to guard any perimeter position. Moves his feet well and disrupts the ball-handler. Covers more ground than he appears. Averaged a 3rd best 2 blocks per game at the U18 Americas Championship in 2022 … Can utilize mismatches, using his size against smaller guards or blowing by bigger defenders …

Weaknesses: Handles contact pretty well but still has a lot of room to add strength … While it’s not a bad thing that he’s a selective driver and doesn’t force his impact on the offensive end, he doesn’t really break down the defense, even with his speed and ball-handling ability. Doesn’t typically slash to the basket until he finds that angle in the half-court or create a lot of scoring opportunities for himself … Can be more efficient as a shooter and scorer. Averaged 10.7 points per game on 42.1% FG% at the NBPA Top 100 in 2021 and 4.7 points per game on 32.4% FG% at the U18 Americas Championship in 2022 … More of a rhythm and streaky shooter than knock down, as he’s had events where he’s been a plus shooter from distance and other times he hasn’t been able to find his rhythm. Shot 35.7% 3PT% on 4.7 3PT attempts per game at the NBPA Top 100 in 2021 and 16.7 3PT% on 1 3PT attempt per game at the U18 Americas Championship in 2022 …

Outlook: Incoming Arkansas freshman … 2022 McDonald’s All-American … Played in the 2022 Nike Hoop Summit … Recorded 11 points, 7 rebounds, and 5 assists in the 2022 Iverson Classic …
