Good post up guard

Summary:

Jae’Sean Tate is a tough, physical combo guard that can attack the basket to garner points and rebounds for his team.  In addition, he played very well at the Pro Basketball Combine, and he routinely excelled at the scrimmages at that event.  On the other hand, he will need to improve his ability to shoot the basketball significantly, and he basically plays like a big man in a combo guard’s body.​

If he can improve his jump shot, that could help his chances to both make and stick in the NBA greatly.  Right now, he may need to spend some time in the G-League or overseas, but with more development, at best he could end up being an effective role player in the mold of a poor man’s P.J. Tucker in the association.
