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 …
