Trevon Duval is a vastly athletic point guard that could excel as a two-way player in the NBA. He can be a handful for opposing defenses with his tremendous ability to attack the rim, as he can garner many scores off the dribble. Plus, he also can collect assists, and he is a solid defensive player that can garner many steals for his team.
However, he is not a very good shooter, and the mechanics on his jump shot may be even worse. Duval also can tend to be a ball stopper, and he may also commit turnovers by trying to make the fancy play rather than the simple one. He also can tend to have lapses defensively, which holds him back from being a stopper on that end.
Right now, there are some very noticeable flaws to his game that he will have to fix, but he possesses great physical tools and ability to score off the dribble, and if he works hard to hone his craft, he could end up being a good player in the NBA.
