Cons:

Needs to improve his shooting
Can struggle to score in traffic
Prone to hoisting up questionable shots

Summary:

Tyrese Maxey is an athletic, skilled combo guard that can help his team in a variety of ways. He can shoot and score the basketball, and he also can run the point if needed to do so. However, he will also need to play more under control, as he can be mistake prone on both ends of the floor. If he has a strong season this year, he could be a first round pick in the 2020 draft.
