Weaknesses: Still must gain maturity. He gets frustrated far too easily and loses his composure quickly when calls go against him, or when he’s struggling Still growing into his body and game, learning what he’s capable of and steadily becoming a factor night in and night out Needs to develop some go to moves. A reliable jump hook would make him an absolute force Must improve from the free throw line (50% won’t cut it). He has solid shooting touch and should be able to raise his FT shooting to at least 70-75 percent over time if he develops a consistent routine and works at it Should be wary of leaving school early. It’s likely he would be a first rounder this year, but a third year in college would really help him in the long run as he would be much better prepared for the NBA and not run the risk of losing confidence and falling short of his full potential
