Tarkus Ferguson is an athletic, skilled combo guard that can score the basketball in a variety of ways. He can get numerous scores off the dribble, and he also can knock down outside shots off the catch. He will need to prove that he can play well at higher levels, and he may also have to field concerns that he might be a possible character risk, as he was suspended in the season opener against Memphis. If he can prove that he can succeed against elite competition, he could find a way to thrive as a role player in the NBA.
