-Extremely creative and fundamentally sound point guard
-Can both score and distribute extremely well
-Possesses a superb first step.
-Can operate at different speeds
-Has very good court vision. Is a willing passer who reads the defense, anticipates well and can move the ball around with pinpoint accuracy
-Gets to the basket at will at the high school level. Draws a ton of fouls. Lives at the free throw line
-Does a good job of getting teammates involved. Makes crisp passes
-Improved 3-point shooter. Made 41% of his 3-point attempts in 23 Nike EYBL games this spring
-Can make shots with feet set or off the dribble
-Converted 87% of his free throw attempts
-Good anticipation skills in passing lanes
-Business-like approach. Carries himself impressively for his age
-Does not possess great physical tools in terms of size, frame or length
-May struggle to draw fouls and finish as effectively around the basket against taller, longer, stronger competition at next level
-Average defender. Conserves energy. Gambles. Does not put great effort in, usually by design due to the considerable offensive load he's expected to shoulder. Question marks persist about how he will fare guarding more physically gifted point guards
Outlook: Mature and intelligent point guard who can carry a team with his scoring ability as well as make others better. Has great potential on the pick and roll. Used to be a relatively poor shooter, but seems to have improved that part of his game. Average height and narrow frame are the biggest concerns revolving around just how high his ceiling is long-term.
