Strengths: A combo guard with all the physical tools to become a serious player at the next level … He has the size, strength and athleticism to put him in the top echelon of guards … When determined, he can get to the basket at will and finish above the rim with authority … He has a great burst of speed and a quick first step, making it easy for him to create space … He shoots the ball well from deep, but is especially dangerous from midrange, where he shows a nice pull-up with terrific elevation … Continues to become a more steady and capable playmaker … Looks to make plays for others … Still has a fair amount of upside …
Weaknesses: Has a tendency of becoming complacent and coasting, has all the tools to be a terrific player, but sometimes he plays with very little energy and determination … Does not have great focus and concentration, often being an easy target of double teams … Plays wild at times … Lacks body control on penetration, leaving him off balance and forcing him to take awkward shot attempts … Seems to be a rhythm guy, when things are going well he plays with energy and can do a lot of things, but when they go bad he seems to just compound his mistakes further …
