Pros:

Excels at scoring on off-ball motion plays

Adequate defender that can get steals
Solid athlete

Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
Needs to improve his free throw shooting

Summary:

Matthew Cleveland is a very athletic, high-motor swingman that can make hustle plays to help his team on both ends of the floor.  He excels at attacking the hoop to score the basketball, and he is also a rangy defender that can get steals and then turn them into fast break points.  He will need to improve his jump shot, but if things break his way, he could end up being a second round pick in the 2023 draft.
