Tyrese Haliburton is a tall, pass-first guard that can shoot and facilitate for teams on offense.  He also is a solid defender, as he has the ability o guard either backcourt position.

On the other hand, Haliburton sometimes may not shoot the basketball enough.  If Haliburton can find the right balance between shooting and passing, it could allow him to elevate his game to a whole another level.  So far, he has been playing well this season, and he could be a lottery pick in 2020.
