Has good strength and an NBA ready body. Gets off the floor well and can plays above the rim. Gets good angles on his moves to the basket and knows how to draw fouls and capitalize from the line.

Shoots a high percentage from the floor, from three and from the foul line. Plays within the offense and doesn't make many mistakes. Active defender and above average rebounder.

Cons
Doesn't shoot well off the dribble. Lacks top end speed. Needs to learn to take over games and become the focal point of the offense.
