George De Paula is a young, athletic combo guard that has the skills to play either backcourt position. He has a wide array of skills, but he will need to improve his jump shot, and he can still be mistake on occasion.
In addition, his play was perhaps inconsistent at best at Hoops Summit as well as at the 2015 Chicago combine. De Paula has the talent and upside to be a good player in the NBA, but he will need to find a way to put his skills altogether to reach that goal.
