Overview: A great point guard who has developed a scoring repertoire to match his point guard skills. Pretty average size for his position. Displays a great first step. Isn’t very strong, but that hasn’t been a problem for him. Makes a living as a distributor, but has developed a nice offensive repertoire overall. Spent only two years at Alabama. Took a season for him to turn things around once he entered the League. Has already far outplayed his draft position. One of the more talented young point guards in the League.

Offense: The driver behind a great deal of Milwaukee’s offensive success. Gets most of his touches running the pick and roll and pushing the ball in transition. Proves capable as a spot up shooter as well. Displays a consistent shooting stroke with three point range, although he can still stand to improve here. Has become a very dangerous catch and shoot player. Good shooter off the dribble as well. Tends to go to the rim when driving right and pull up when driving left. Shows good touch around the basket. Finishes with a lot of creativity. Doesn’t deal well with contact, but can usually avoid it. Goes to the line at an average pace, something he should definitely work on. Shoots a very good percentage. Makes a living as a point guard. Does almost all of the ball handling for Milwaukee. Routinely gets his teammates involved and create open shots for others. Very good ball handler and passer, even if he’s more of a scorer than a facilitator. Will break his man down off the dribble and drop the ball off to the open man when the defense collapses.

Defense: Has average physical tools here due to his lack of size and bulk. Effort wavers at times. Can put good pressure on the ball when needed, but lacks a degree of lateral quickness to avoid getting beat off the dribble. Struggles after taking the initial bump from stronger guards. Not much of a rebounder at his position. A bit lackadaisical closing out shooters at times.
