Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Has terrific size and mobility from the back end. Displays both decent offensive instincts and a hard shot from the point.

Weaknesses: 

At 6-3, 205 pounds, he needs to make better use of his imposing frame. Is still lacking in consistency and needs to raise his game to the next level.
