Draft Notes

A big athlete at the point guard position to who is a blur in the open court and excels at getting downhill to the basket. Has a lot of explosion and bounce, allowing him to finish in traffic, over length.

Doesn’t have great size but has a ton of quickness and high level athleticism.

Needs to become a knock down 3pt shooter.

Shows a lot of leadership on the court.
