Overview
A slasher and natural scorer with a solid frame and top level athleticism. Raw but with a lot of talent.

Strengths
Well built, strong and athletic 2-guard who is a talented scorer. Has the strength to score in the lane and finish through contact and is an aggressive driver who takes it hard to the rim.

Has all the physical tools to be a high level NBA player, including quick feet, great agility, good strength and a ton of bounce.

He does a nice job of moving without the ball, curling off screens and finding the open shot. His top level quickness and great lateral agility help him shake the defender and he shows his BBIQ with his off the ball movements and spacing.

He has really nice shooting form and shows good promise to develop into a high level three point shooter. He gets good elevation on his jumper and has a smooth, quick release.

Weaknesses
Needs to work on his off hand and overall ball-handling abilities.

Lacks consistency on his outside jumper and has a ways to go before he's a true knock-down threat from 3 point land.

Needs to let the game slow down and do a better job of playing within the offense. Can force the issue at times. Is still learning the game.

Recovering from a knee injury (summer of 2017).

Comparisons
Iman Shumpert with a better jumper.

Projection: possible first round pick in the 2018 or 2019 NBA Draft
