Experts' Predicted Draft Position: Lottery pick

Experts' Take: While playing in Italy for Lottomatica Roma, averaged 6.0 ppg and 2.2 apg in 18.0 mpg Won't blow anyone away, but given the uniqueness of his position, scouts have given him a lot of slack. He's a super athletic point guard and is an extremely quick and explosive player, especially off the dribble. Has exceptional wingspan and leaping ability for a point guard. Has great open court speed and likes to attack in transition. He is very good at changing direction mid-stride without losing speed or control of the ball. Gets to the rim and finishes well with a nice mix of moves.
