Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted
Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays
Adequate playmaker for his size
Decent defender that can get steals and blocks
Needs to improve his shooting
Needs to improve his face-up game
Must extend his shooting range
Not an elite ball handler
Can be undisciplined defensively
Classic tweener, may be in between forward positions
