Elijah Stewart is an athletic, skilled guard that has an interesting set of skills. He is a very good shooter that can knock down many threes from beyond the arc, and he is a surprisingly good finisher around the basket, as he can get scores in traffic.
In addition, he has the ability to develop into a solid defensive player, as he is a terrific shot blocker for a player his size. However, he will need to improve his playmaking skills, and he can tend to be caught out of position defensively at times. But still, Elijah Stewart is an intriguing prospect that may have the potential to excel as a 3 and D type of player in the NBA.
