Strengths & Weaknesses

Strengths

Length

Creativity

Has nice size at 6’8” with a very good wingspan… Is a well-rounded offensive player and can spot up, create his own shot off the dribble, and also make plays for his teammates… Is very good in transition, where he uses his quickness, athleticism, and ability to handle the ball… Is a good rebounder for his position (7.0 REB/36) and can quickly initiate the fast break off of boards on the defensive end… Long arms and above-average lateral quickness make him a plus defender at the shooting guard position… Makes plays on the defensive end, blocking shots from behind in transition and playing the passing lanes for steals… At 20 years old, is already a major contributor alongside 2014 lottery pick Dario Saric with Turkish club Anadolu Efes.

Weaknesses

Range

Strength

Is a boom or bust shooter from beyond the arc – when he’s in a rhythm, he can be deadly, but other nights he’ll go 0-for-5… Body is not yet developed, and as a result he struggles to finish through contact… A jack of all trades, master of none.
