Overview
A walking bucket, White is a pure scorer with a nose for the basket. Has good quickness and strength but lacks high end athleticism.

Strengths
  • Can really fill it up - a natural born scorer with great instincts for getting into the lane and finding his shot
  • Scores from three levels
  • Has offensive versatility - can play on or off the ball
  • A leader who plays with passion
  • Has a powerful build and quick first step, making him very hard to stop one on one
  • Has good lateral quickness 
  • Changes speeds well and can get the defender off balance with his stop/start ability
  • A deft ball handler and passer who has some good lead guard skills
Weaknesses
  • Is not a big time run/jump athlete - more of a below the rim player
  • Doesn't have a great release point on his shot
  • Lacks ideal size for the 2 guard position and doesn't have great length
Comparisons
  • Cuttino Mobley
Projection: possible first round pick in the 2020 or 2021 NBA Draft
