Overview
A wiry and athletic combo guard who projects as a possible lottery pick in a few years. The 6-5 lefty excels at penetrating the lane and has an explosive first step with the ability to blow by defenders.

Strengths
  • Is developing a solid NBA body with good size for the PG position
  • Has high end athleticism and great open court speed
  • A terrific ball-handler who pushes the pace and has a lot of moves and creativity 
  • Has a good, wide crossover dribble and a lot of shake and bake
  • Has great burst and suddenness. Has blow-by speed and can really elevate at the rim
  • Will put you on a poster
  • A good set-up man with court vision and a willingness to find the open man
  • Knows how to get his shot and also how to draw fouls - a terrific FT shooter
  • Gives good effort on defense and can really get after the ball-handler
  • Has a solid frame for a young guard and can score through contact
Weaknesses
  • Doesn't yet have a good outside shot and is a limited threat from 3-point land
  • Like all young players he needs to develop his understanding of the game, get stronger, improve his jumper... the usual developmental things
Comparisons
  • A more creative Dante Exum. Like Exum got mixed up with some Stephon Marbury.
Projection: first round pick in the 2020 NBA Draft
