Strengths: Works screens well and moves well without the ball. Ducks his head to penetrate and uses a bump-and-push to create space while attempting to finish. Has a nice shooting touch and 20-foot range. Knows how to draw fouls. Works diligently on defense and will hit boards with effort. Can play some point and run the transition, but still needs improvement on handle and strength.
Personal: Trains with Peja Stojakovic during the summer.
