Rui Zhao is a skilled combo guard that can shoot and pass the basketball.  He had a good season in the CBA, as he helped Guangdong get to the postseason this year.

Though he may only possess fairly average athletic gifts, Zhao is a talented player that has a high basketball IQ, and he could potentially end up being a potential second round pick in 2018.
